Edinburgh based performance artist, DJ and Drag Performer Jordy Deelight brings his brand new biographical one man show to Edinburgh for the first time. Where the art of Drag is to create fantasy, this production will deliver the reality of a rather human journey.
So, what is Wasted Youth? Its A devised theatre performance featuring elements of drag performance and video footage.
“I go to bed every night and I look back throughout the day I had, making sure I called my friends and family in between to ask how their day was. I wonder if they’re ok, and if at any point they were lying to me, as not everyone has to be strong.”
Wasted Youth. A non-conventional drag show. A piece of media. A journey. The synchronicity method. A life sentence from the age of 2. Learn about Jordan as told by Jordy
Jordan spoke to Scotsgay arts saying “Wasted Youth asks the question, who is Jordy Deelight? As I seek to explore who is behind the make up using performance drag and multimedia projections. I am also delighted this performance will be fully BSL interpreted as I wish to ensure the performance is open to all.”
Wasted Youth takes to the stage on Wednesday 30th January at 19:30 at the Scottish Story Telling Centre on the High Street, Royal Mile, Edinburgh. Please note this production is strictly an 18+ event and under 18’s will not be permitted in the theatre.
