David Hoyle: Rebellion at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 23 July 2021 - Book now

Subversive, intelligent and surprising are just some of the words we’d use to describe a David Hoyle performance. Following the stop-starts of lockdown and our experiences of the last 16 months, Hoyle steps out of the darkness of lockdown with defiance.

For this latest performance – aptly entitled Rebellion – Hoyle encourages the audience to come together in love and support, healing and sharing, and to join a performative rebellion.

Since developing his ’90s persona, The Divine David, an “anti drag queen” whom he dramatically killed off in his 2000 show The Divine David on Ice, Hoyle has become a queer scene legend. Hailed as “the greatest living performer” by Justin Vivian Bond and as an “icon, inspiration and pal” by Travis Alabanza, Hoyle is the original avant-garde performance avalanche.

Considering everything we’ve been through collectively and individually since March 2020, maybe we’re all due a rebellion.

Join David Hoyle in Rebellion at Homeground, HOME‘s outdoor cultural venue close to the existing building on First Street.
