About This Show

Experience a night of queer history, comedy and music with drag artist La Gitana as they takes the stage to celebrate the subversive nature of Spanish Copla songs. This genre of music was once repressed by Franco’s dictatorship, but La Gitana is bringing it back to life with a fresh twist that will have you laughing, singing along and tapping your feet.

In this solo performance, Dr Copla Alejandro Postigo de-constructs the traditional Spanish songs and shares their historical significance for queer collectives, inviting the audience to be part of the dialogue. Through his interpretation of songs his sharing of life stories, you’ll witness his rebirth as alter ego La Gitana, all while enjoying drinks and interacting with the performer.
