Genre/Subjects: Drag, Lesbian, Theater / Performance Art

DIRECTOR: Kenneth Elvebakk

On the other end of the gender spectrum and across an ocean, director Kenneth Elvebakk tracks the Norwegian drag king troupe of daKings through rehearsals, costume fittings, and very long—and sometimes tense—troupe meetings. For two years, the women of the troupe build their stage characters, hone the fine points of playing a man onstage, practice their dance moves and swaggers, and delight in custom-made suits. Simultaneously, they are building a troupe together, working through the struggles, compromise, and possibility of collaboration.
