Crystal Bollix is an exciting new drag artist that has burst onto the London scene.
Created by Alexandra Christle as a part of her thesis at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and honed at Soho Theatre's Drag and Cabaret Lab, Crystal Bollix's mission is to interrogate toxic patriarchal stereotypes in order to understand themselves. They create a queer utopia that combines song, dance, lip-sync, and A LOT of audience interaction.
Their first show The Bitch Ball was premiered as part of the Maiden Speech Festival 2018 and went on to tour to London, Leicester and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This was loved by audiences and critics alike, receiving four stars from Within Her Word 2018.
Their second show Definitely Maybe Actually Nevermind just finished it's run at Maiden Speech Festival 2019 and was labelled by Steph Hartland as 'riotous, hilarious but hugely provocative and relatable' Steph Hartland 2019. DMAN was scheduled to tour 2020 but due to Covid-19 this has been postponed to 2022.
They can also be seen performing at venues such as Bethnal Green Working Men's Club and Spiegeltent.
