HIGH HEELS IN LOW PLACES
Written & performed by Panti
Directed by Phillip McMahon
The Queen of Ireland Panti invites you into her gender-discombobulating, stiletto shaped world, exposing stories behind the make-up – from performance giant to accidental activist – to reveal the national f*cking treasure she is today.
In 2014, Panti landed herself in a legal shitstorm, dubbed Pantigate. Her speech about homophobia went viral, was broadcast worldwide, remixed by Pet Shop Boys, caused a parliamentary meltdown and fed into Ireland’s marriage equality referendum success.
Hilarious and poignant, Panti traces her journey from small-town boy kicking against traditions to towering plastique woman in false lashes making history.
‘Leaves lipstick traces on both heart and mind.’
‘A wise, hilarious, foul-mouthed jolt to the system.’
★★★★ Time Out
‘Exquisitely tart-tongued comedy… electrically revealing and masterful.’
★★★★★ Irish Times
★★★★ Irish Independent
Part of STUCK ON YOU, a sticky strand of queer spectacles, at Take Me Somewhere 2017.
Programmed by a local gang of displaced queerdos, Stuck on You is a strand of performance, dancing and lovin’ within the festival – confronting continued violence on queer bodies and calling for collective action through fun, pleasure and rage.
STUCK ON YOU is co-produced by Outspoken Arts.
