Join Double Okay for a 5 week programme of LGBTQIA+ performance workshops at Reading Rep Theatre! Inspired by their drag and art practices, Mister Frank (AKA G K Field) and Valeria Radchenko will guide you through a series of sessions that explore DIY methods of making, writing and performing. These sessions will bring together queer people who are interested in performance, to explore, learn and create work together.

The sessions will be inspired by Reading Rep Theatre’s upcoming showcase of Hedda Gabler, and will also include an opportunity to see the play. Workshops are open to anyone who is LGBTQIIA+ and over 16.

Sessions  will be held at the theatre from 6:30 – 8:30 pm on the following dates: Wed 1 Feb, 8 Feb, 15 Feb, 22 Feb, 1 Mar.

Double Okay is your dream grassroots, queer & trans artist collective. We are Reading based and host experimental cabaret and drag nights, regular workshops, exhibitions and arts events as a point of local resistance and solidarity. We began in 2018 in response to a lack of queer spaces – since then we have worked closely with local venues and organisations within Reading, creating bridges between both local queer and arts communities.

Ollie Musson is a Sheffield born, queer, trans and non-binary artist living in Reading. Influenced by their drag performances as Sheer Obsession, they also use film, sound and text to create surreal narratives of transformation. Ollie uses DIY publishing as documentation/community resources, and through printmaking reclaims traditional art methodologies.

G K FIeld is a Reading based artist for the past 20 years. They have a background of working through painting methodologies creating & queering landscapes through different mediums. They use performance with their drag alter ego Mister Frank to inhabit these landscapes.
