In SLICK, Sofia Södergård enters the stage transformed into drag king Qarl Qunt. We follow his fourth world tour both on and off stage. Qarl has the firmest handshake and thinks few things compare to picking vegetables. With an interest in power and sexuality, he offers a crossover show that lands somewhere between cabaret and performance. Through the dance styles of voguing and waacking, he delivers butch realness that challenges the stereotypically masculine and feminine.
SLICK premiered at Dansens Hus festival Urban Connection 2018 and went on tour around the country in the autumn of 2018 in collaboration with Dansnät Sweden.
