Seymour Centre and Shaun Parker & Company in association with Sydney WorldPride present

KING

28 Feb - 4 Mar 2023

KING is a music-dance collaboration between award-winning choreographer Shaun Parker, internationally renowned vocalist Ivo Dimchev, and nine outstanding dancers.

Set in a fantastical realm - part cocktail bar, part jungle - KING interrogates the power systems that oppress the natural development of male sexuality and identity. A biting, yet humorous theatrical experience, KING is a ‘must-see’ production!

Sydney WorldPride audiences will see the relaunch of KING before it heads overseas to festivals across Europe. Running alongside the season is an integrated Queer Mentorship program for emerging artists and producers led by Shaun Parker, developing our next generation of LGBTQIA+ artistic leaders.

This project is generously supported by Australia Council for the Arts, Create NSW, City of Sydney and Inner West Council.

"KING is a stunning canon... the cast reflects Australia’s multicultural heritage, and the dancers are of diverse body types and ethnicities."
