REIGN is dedicated to creating button pushing political performance art practices through the medium of punk drag that empower the LGBT+ community from prejudicial and discriminatory legislation and ideology in the continued fight for equality. Recent and upcoming endeavours include: National Student Drama Festival (solo performance), De Montfort University Studios (solo and group performances) and Attenborough Arts Centre (upcoming solo performance). Originally from London, REIGN graduated from Drama Studies at De Montfort University in Leicester in 2017 and is currently concluding their MA Arts degree at De Montfort University.
