Internationally renowned performer Roymata Holmes explores gender-fluidity in a performance at the Seymour Centre: Sound Lounge. (University of Sydney) | 6th - 10th September | 7pm & 9pm |

The charismatic Roymata Holmes brings their show to Sydney this September!

It follows Roymata’s world premiere of I Am King I Am Queen, which saw him perform to sold-out crowds at the Anywhere Arts Festival.

“I cannot wait to share what we’ve been creating for you! We’ve been through a lot the last couple of years and now it’s time to catch up and celebrate!”

I Am King I Am Queen 2.0 is an autobiographical PERFORMANCE following his search to find herself, through exploring their sexuality, religious upbringing and cultural ties in Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Islands.

Written, narrated, and performed by Queer artist Roymata Holmes (he/they). A story written to showcase and celebrate the LGBTQIA+ BIPOC community, and we will ensure this remains a safe space for ALL.

Roymata shows it’s about the journey, not the destination. This coming-of-age extravaganza is a high-energy night of traditional and modern dance, physical theatre, and the quickest Drag transformation you’ve ever seen!

Viewer discretion advised.
