DEEPLY LEISURED is a hybrid performance that spans the genres of stand up comedy, performance, lecture, and consciousness-raising story telling. Queenie Bon Bon presents narratives detailing her deep love for her clients & coworkers, and the eternal joys and mysteries of working with bodies. She also shares stories on coming out as a sex worker to her mother, whorephobia and internet dating, and tips on covering up when you peed on the carpet at your workplace. A tender and true look into her lived experience as a sex worker, coworker  solidarity, as well as social and political issues surrounding sex work, DEEPLY LEISURED is a performance full of intrigue and inspiration.

Suggested donation $5 to $15

Deeply Leisured premiered at Melbourne Fringe Festival and has since showed at Sydney’s infamous queer warehouse performance venue The Red Rattler, Hares and Hyenas Queer Bookshop as part of Scarlett Alliance’s National Sex Worker Forum, at Adelaide Fringe Festival and has also been performed as a fundraiser for the English prostitute’s collective in London. Queenie Bon Bon is an up and coming political comedic writer and performer.  Aside from performing Deeply Leisured, she has done readings on the delights of being human furniture, fragmented realities  and talked panels about the importance of decriminalisation and myth busting. Queenie is part of the Debbie’s (Australian sex worker art collective) and has spent several years working on a sex worker oral story telling archival project, and is now writing her first novel. Queenie has worked as a  dancer, in massage parlours and in brothels over Australia as well as in the UK.
