I think of drag as American Kabuki. Both are performance arts that employ spectacular costuming, stylized storytelling, and actors who blur gender distinctions. This project acknowledges drag’s foremost exponents in the San Francisco Bay Area and worldwide. With its presentation of portraits in diptych format — a “twofer”, if you will, it attempts to show character over caricature.
