Queenie Bon Bon — The Body is its Own Language
Sharing new and old works about bodies, bonds and beginnings
Queenie Bon Bon is a writer, performance artist and sex worker living and working in Narrm/Birrarung - Melbourne. Queenie Bon-Bon work combines a hilarious story telling with amazing truthiness about being what it is to be human.
Their humour is as dry as their tales of sex work are moist, or in some cases awash with fluids that no amount of baby wipes soak up!
Bon Bon has created four full length shows, which have toured in Australia, Europe and North America. They are a regular at the Hare Hole and will be returning later in the year for the Generations Festival, an event that celebrates the significant work of the venue over 30 years and thanks the many important artists like Queenie Bon Bon who have developed their work and craft here.
Queenie Bon Bon's written and visual work has been featured in locanto, backpage and in Maximum Rock and Roll and The Lifted Brow. They are a member of the Australian sex worker art collective Debby Doesn't Do It For Free. In 2020 they were the recipient of Firstdraft’s Writers Program and was runner up for the title of the WOTYs (Whore of the Year) for their contributions to sex work activism in so called Australia.
This show has ADULT CONCEPTS; STRONG LANGUAGE; and SEXUAL ACTS DESCRIBED. The show is simultaneously live streamed to audiences online. Following these shows, a chill-out room at the back of the venue will host a small gathering for conversation and listening to the music of DJ HIP HOP HOE.
