How often do we play The Fool? Historically, society has oft relegated the queer to the role of the clown, from sad Pierrot to the sissy, the funny fop to the lonely dandy. Backed by his neo-cabaret band, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?, singer-songwriter, Brian King performs an internal/external wrestling match onstage with these characters. Through make-up, costume, monologues and original music, Brian examines the ways these archetypes both empower and limit our identities and relationships. Assisted by a cult of personalities, including an aerialist and acrobat, Gravitational Fool is a sensual circus of the psyche that will cure you of your clown phobia
