bishop black

Bishop Black is a British artist who has been performing for 7 years, initially in the medium of performance art, before shifting to drag and later burlesque. His main expression comes from the use of body as language and a politicised tool, through sexuality and gender. Having worked the last few years within film, he works mostly on stage creating unique but connected performances that utilise mythology, occultism, queerness and dance. Throughout the works created, the intention of mood through music and acting is seen as an underlying current that seeks progression and growth in unlocking that which could be seen as ridculous, stimulating and aiming to unlock the repression one feels on their own bodies.
