Friday 16th March 2018 (20-21 GMT)
"King Louis (commonly known as Louis King) is an American multimedia performer and artist, strongly influenced by his Midwestern, ‘Rust Belt’ roots. Louis's performance and activism are currently concentrated on exploring issues impacting LGBTQ and working class populations. His work typically combines elements of sculpture, monologue, and aural soundscape to create interactive experiences that engage Millennials with live art. He is currently living and working predominately in the United Kingdom.
Louis King has worked extensively with Holly Hughes of the NEA 4, Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver of Split Britches, and Lecoq trained performer, Malcolm Tulip. He has facilitated the performances of Ruth Maleczech of Mabou Mines, Cyndi Lauper, and P!NK. Louis's performance work has been presented in New York City, Chicago, London, Spain, the Prague Quadrennial 2015 Festival, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. His frequent collaborators include Erin V. Murray, Colin Fulton, the Figs in Wigs, and the circus artists of The Muse, Brooklyn where Louis was an artist in residence from 2013-2014."
