'Drag: The Power to Move'
Adelaide born, Marc has had a stellar career as a professional dancer, choreographer, actor and teacher with credits including Broadway and West End shows. With the creation of his alter-drag-ego, Kris del Vayze, a second career was born after his dance retirement when he co-founded internationally acclaimed, Australian drag performance troupe ‘Drags Aloud’. This saw Marc performing at Fringe and Comedy Festivals across the UK, Ireland and Australia, and once again in New York, with sell out shows off-Broadway.
Marc has written and produced two production shows to critical acclaim in the UK and a solo show for the Dublin International Gay Theatre Festival.
After many years living overseas, Marc has now returned to Adelaide and is still performing, both in and out of drag.
