MINCE (article first published : 2000-02-17)

Top Cape Town-based drag show, Mince, comes to the Langoustine by the Sea for four nights only from February 23 to 26 with a new show titled Choice Mince. The show is a celebration of female vocalists from around the world and features two female impersonators (drag artists) Keiron Legacy (Martin) and Lilly Slaptsilli (Clive). This is a super-slick show along the lines of the production staged in Durban in July '98 which ran to capacity houses.

Choice Mince features "the best of" the four previous shows and celebrates the works of artists such as Tina Turner, Alanis Morrisette, Gladys Knight, Whoopi Goldberg, Bette Midler, Eartha Kitt and many more.

Keiron (Martin) started doing drag while doing his national service. He then went onto compete in - and win - various drag beauty pageants held in night-clubs. Qualified as a window dresser, Martin worked at a top homeware store while doing drag on the side. A couple of years ago, he and a friend entered the best-dressed couple competition at the J&B Met and won hands down. It was only afterwards that the judges realised that the best-dressed woman was in fact a man!

Lilly (Clive), on the other hand, has no previous drag experience, other than excelling in drama at school. After studying fashion design at the Cape Technikon Clive realised that he had the talent for producing fashion shows and now owns a top décor shop and runs a successful fashion-show production-house.

Booking is through Computicket. For more info call (031) 563-7324
