Hold onto your wigs because Adelaide Fringe is about to be blown wide open by a genre-bending spectacle called “Unplugged.”
This electrifying show, brought to life by the captivating Wundes, isn’t your average drag performance. It’s a sonic and visual odyssey that blends live music, theatre, and art, all while challenging societal norms and celebrating the beauty of self-discovery.
Prepare to be mesmerized by Wundes, Adelaide’s reigning drag queen and a powerhouse vocalist. Their unique style, honed over a decade of captivating audiences across Australia, seamlessly blends the nostalgic with the avant-garde. Get ready for laugh-out-loud comedy that melts into heart-wrenching ballads, all delivered with the panache of a true performer.
Also, for the first time, see Wundes debut their own original music in Unplugged, accompanied by their live ensemble “Next Best Feeling”.
But “Unplugged” is more than just a dazzling display of talent. It’s a deeply personal journey that delves into the life of a daydreamer, yearning to break free from societal expectations. Through music, Wundes manifests as the imaginary friend you always wished you had – one who cheers you on and challenges you to embrace your true self.
Think coming-of-age story meets rock opera, all filtered through the lens of growing up queer in the 1990s. Wundes masterfully tackles the rigidity of gender norms, prompting audiences to question how technology and media shape our lives and relationships.
This isn’t just a show; it’s an experience. Immerse yourself in the world Wundes creates, transported by innovative lighting and projections that blur the lines between reality and fantasy. Prepare to laugh, cry, and leave with a newfound sense of hope and acceptance.
Wundes, in their own words, describes “Unplugged” as “a collaboration between two emerging South Australian artists, incorporating immersive theatre, live performance, music, and comedy. It’s a critique of our relationship with media, blended with drag, live music, and immersive projection, prompting audiences to question how technology shapes our relationships.”
So, if you’re looking for a show that will push boundaries, ignite your senses, and leave you questioning everything you thought you knew, “Unplugged” is a must-see.
