Midsumma Festival: Bent Bollywood

A moving invocation of diaspora, gender, transgression and filth

Bent Bollywood is a queer dance show that combines the technical rigour of classical Indian dance, the camp theatrics of Bollywood and everything that is weird and wonderful about queer performance art.

Witness the treacherous imagination of the diaspora, the postcolonial rage of the subaltern, and the exuberant lust of the queers who would have written a much better Kama Sutra if only they’d been asked.

The magnificent classical Indian dancer and queer performance artist Raina Peterson will be joined by their pet twink, an otherwise irrelevant pretty boy who’s primary function in life is as an object d’art. Get bent with these Bollywood babes in their moving invocation of diaspora, gender, transgression and filth.
