S&S Productions and MVT Productions in partnership with Babylon the Joburg Bar brings RuPaul’s Drag Race star Detox to South Africa on 22 and 23 September.
Detox Icunt (Matthew Sanderson), simply known as Detox, will perform at the Joseph Stone Auditorium in Cape Town and The Platteland in Centurion.
Sanderson is an American drag performer and recording artist whose Detox persona was a fixture in the Southern California drag scene before gaining prominence on RuPaul’s Drag Race.
In November 2012, Logo announced that Detox was among 14 drag queens who would be competing on the fifth season of the hit show. She had been auditioning since Season 3.
Detox won the children’s TV show-themed main challenge in the episode Draggle Rock. As part of the show, Detox sang on the We Are the World-inspired song, Can I Get an Amen? The song’s proceeds helped benefit the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center and Detox finished the season in 4th place.
In June 2016, Detox was announced as one of the cast members on the second season of RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race, where she was a runner up.
The organisers of the South African shows will once again feature local drag queens at both venues as supporting acts, allowing them to share a stage with an international performer.
The Joseph Stone Auditorium will see cabaret stars Manila von Teez, Vida Fantabisher and Kat Gilardi take to the stage while the Platteland, Centurion SA cast will be announced soon.
While visiting, Detox will also be involved in outreach programmes and get the opportunity to see our beautiful country.
