Are you a drag king, a drag queer, a performance artist... something fabulous?
Kongs is a queer-lovin', binary-bustin' gender friendly drag family based in Melbourne. We support established and emerging drag babes, with a particular focus on AFAB and gender-diverse drag artists. While this is our focus we are also open to other performance artists, especially those who actively support the drag king community.
Kongs is proud of our history of supporting emerging drag performers. We welcome performers of all levels of experience -
so whether you're an established king or a first-timer we have opportunities for you. Please get in touch!
Kongs also offers a range of production opportunities for anyone keen to get involved behind the scenes, such as event production, stage management, administration, marketing and more. For more info about how you can get involved behind the scenes please complete the contact form at the bottom of the page.
During these Covid times we are hosting a range of Auslan interpreted/ captioned livestream events with a combination of pre-recorded and live performances. Kongs strives to amplify the art of First Nations, PoC, Deaf, trans and gender-diverse performers, particularly during this time of financial insecurity and uncertainty which unfairly affects these groups.
We strongly encourage people of these groups to apply to perform with us.
Kongs welcomes expressions of interest from performers of any level of performance experience, cultural background, gender, ability or sexuality. Preference is given to AFAB, PoC and gender diverse performers. These events are Auslan interpreted and we highly encourage Deaf performers to apply.
Showcase events are held on the off-month to our New Kongs open stage events.
