“Take back your own power” / A conversation with King Baxter on masculinity, cultural appropriation and drag power


In preparation for the premiere of Desiderata by Cie Cabas, I wanted to explore what aspects of the piece’s performative proposal resonate with contemporary culture in Brussels. The circus based show, that’s going to premiere 18-19 March of 2022, deals with masculine identity and the performativity of masculine bodies in acrobatic technique by putting it in tension with the vulnerability of male bodies on stage. As one of the elders of the drag scene in Brussels, King Baxter seemed like the perfect interlocutor to dive into what it means to perform as a masculine roi, even when emotionally shattered by gender standards.
