POWER UP is the second show from political comedic writer, professional stripper and fantasy maker Queenie Bon Bon (MELB/UK).

Hard-hitting and hilarious, in POWER UP Queenie shares stories from her lived experience, taking us on a journey from a brothel in a New York Airbnb, through a stint a suburban strip club in Adelaide with a penchant for Nickelback, to the realm of online dating and beyond. In doing so, she examines how we talk about sex for money, mental health, being another cog in the labor market and narratives that venture far beyond the binarized "empowered Happy Hooker" and "drugged-up victim" definitions. (I.D Magazine)

This show is seriously NOT TO BE MISSED. Not only is it powerful, emotional and seat-wettingly funny, it is crucially relevant, especially in S.A where sex work is still illegal, but more pointedly as a truthful, frank and accessible voice in myth and stigma busting!
