All The Queens Men create spectacular theatrical and participatory art experiences.
Led by Tristan Meecham and Bec Reid, All The Queens Men champion social equality by providing creative opportunities for diverse members of society, celebrating these ‘everyday experts’ in exciting and technically proficient art contexts. Combining contemporary and popular art forms and tropes, All The Queens Men mission is aligned to that of pioneering UK company Duckie who state –
… we believe that art and performance can be used as tools to bring about community solidarity, to make ordinary people happy and even for personal development and recovery for the most vulnerable amongst us. We use popular forms of entertainment, volunteer participation and the poetics of partying to make our shows accessible to communities that are marginalised from society.
With over 30 years of combined experience in contemporary community engagement, All The Queens Men have presented leading large-scale community projects around the world including: Arts Centre Melbourne, Bleach Festival (Gold Coast), Ansan Arts Festival (South Korea), ANTI Contemporary Arts Festival (Finland), Sydney Festival, Darwin Festival, Arts House (Melbourne), Brisbane Powerhouse, Next Wave Festival (Melbourne), Festival of Live Art and City of Melbourne amongst many others.
Tristan Meecham is an artist who is passionate about social transformation; connecting community, audience and artists together in events that transcend the everyday. Bec Reid is a performer, producer, director, choreographer and engagement specialist who encourages people to see their world in new ways through highly physical, participatory, practical, collaborative and celebratory actions.
All The Queens Men have over 30 years of combined experience in contemporary arts practice and management. We make, perform and love collaborating with people across many different areas of expertise.
ATQM have and continue to perform extensively across theatre and dance. Our passion is community participation. Tristan is fast becoming a ‘host of choice’ for various organisations and events. Bec will happily get on the floor; particularly if it involves getting people dancing.
