Bourgeois & Maurice : Insane Animals

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , ,

 

Sequin-clad satirical weirdos Bourgeois & Maurice are alien siblings from another planet but they also are quintessential eccentric Brits.  And an extremely talented pair too.  The award-winning duo are stars in London’s Alternative  East End  and in touring the globe their outrageous and idiosyncratic act have collected them international fans who love their discerning perfomance art.

In 2020 they enjoyed critical success with their sixth new musical Insane Animals, commissioned and produced by HOME Manchester. The hit show played to packed crowds for 3 weeks until the wretched Covid 19 Lockdown brought it all to an abrupt end,  Now almost a year later they are about an Original Cast Album as a preview to re-opening the Show when the World gets back on its axis.

Queerguru talked with Bourgeois & Maurice about this and caught up with all their other news.

Mrs Kasha Davis : Workhorse Queen

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , , ,

 

 

We first met Mrs. Kasha Davis a larger than life Drag Queen when she was appearing at one of out favorite cabaret venues : The Pilgrim House in PTown.  We actually interviewed her a couple of times there, but now we are meeting ……. through the power of the internet ……. to talk about Workhorse Queen.

This is a warts-and-all brand new documentary from filmmaker  Angela Washko  about the ups and down of Mrs Davis’s journey seeking brighter lights and bigger stages.  What ever happens along the way never seems to dent her irrepressible good spirits even though she may have to reluctantly re-think her path forward.

Mrs Kasha Davis is  part ‘old school drag’ who rely on their life’s experiences to hone their acts in front of a live audience over years.   These constitute a genre known as drag royalty that include the likes of Lady Bunny, Lypsinka, Coco Peru, Varla Jean Merman, Miss Richfield 1981 and Dina Martina and   that Mrs Davis aspires to be a part off    

Prior to the film’s World Premiere at Slamdance Film Festival both star and director talked with Queerguru



Oliver Hermanus talks about MOFFIE his excellent harrowing coming-of-age drama

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , ,

 

The fact that ‘moffie’ is the South African equivalent of ‘faggot’ sets the tone for one of the most harrowing coming-of-age films we have ever seen. It is set in South Africa in 1981 in apartheid where the white minority still dominates and persecutes the ‘colored’ population. They however are not the enemy in this war drama, as the country is obsessed with fighting neighboring Angola with its Soviet-backed troops. If there is one thing that the South Africans hate as much as ‘colored’ people it is Communists. It goes without saying that ‘moffies’ are on that list too.

To keep the Army manned there is mandatory conscription for boys 18 years old ……some even just 16. This is the tale of just one of them

Queerguru talks with director Oliver Hermanus on the eve of IFC Filmsreleasing the film on VOD and in select movie theaters.
