THE GOOD DAUGHTER
Saturday (2/20), 9:00pm, Salvage Vanguard Theater (2803 Manor Rd.)
The Good Daughter is a solo cabaret/music performance examining the relationship between queer identity, power, and gender. Max Steele utilizes pop music, punk rock, and performance art to reverse-engineer drag performance, performing songs written by women about female identity, and articulating a female voice against a culture of late-capitalist, globalist white-supremacist patriarchy. Between songs, he deconstructs his maleness, revealing the aggression in “fag art” as empty. His performance aims to exhaust the rage of being a gay person now, when history has already happened and the future seems foreclosed.
