Friday February 9th, 10:30pm – The Kate Bush Fan Show with Honey Dewme & Ket Bush
Prepare to Wuther your Heights and get Running Up That Hill for a Kate Bush drag tribute night like no other. Honey Dewme & Ket Bush explore the delights and depraved depths of their Kate Bush fandom in a brand new, full length, multimedia theatrical production. Kate Bush aficionados and newcomers alike can expect drama, camp, choreo and unexpected plot twists as Ket and Honey invite you to take a seat, take a breath, and sink into This Woman’s Works.
Honey Dewme (she/her) Rick van Kesteren (he/him) is a drag queen based out of Victoria. Originally from The Netherlands, he firstly discovered Kate Bush in his early teens and immediately was an aficionado of her work. Her magical storytelling played a pivotal part in creating his drag character Honey Dewme, who now performs weekly in any spaces and venues that are available.
Ket Bush (she/her)/Octagon Lang Norman (he/they) is a Victoria-based drag queen. Originally from the UK, Octagon has produced extensive academic and artistic work around both fan practices and Kate Bush as an object of fandom in Europe before moving to Canada and giving birth to Ket Bush. Ket can be found performing weekly on the Victoria drag scene, and Octagon has toured solo work in the UK (Camden Roundhouse, SPILL International Festival of Performance, Royal Vauxhall Tavern), Germany (Vierte Welt, DISKURS Festival) and Sweden (INKONST).
