The Zizi Show

Drag Queens, Drag Kings, Drag Monsters and Artificial Intelligence… 

’The Zizi Show’ (2020) is a virtual online stage hosting a groundbreaking new cabaret show with a twist. Featuring (and hosted by) Zizi, a drag act that has been constructed using deep-fake technology and has learnt how to do drag by watching a diverse group of human performers. During the acts audiences are invited to switch between the different deep-fake bodies and identities that Zizi has learnt, making visible the processes used in their construction.
