I don’t make a bucket list, but if I did photographing a DEBUT Classical performance at Shoreditch Treehouse would probably have been on there – I’m a huge fan of bringing classical performance into unusual spaces. I was even more excited when DEBUT’s founder Lizzie Holmes told me it was going to be a ‘twist on the original’ and feature the wonderful Miss Davida Loca in the first DEBUT Drag.
There’s more about the development of DEBUT Drag on their website; it’s also well worth keeping an eye out for future DEBUT events.
Performing alongside Davida were DEBUT’s founder Lizzie Holmes, saxophonist Manu Brazo and pianist Sam Peña.
DEBUT have very kindly put up a full gallery of images on their website – take a look here.
