Chez Deep, a performance collective founded by Sam Banks, Hari Nef, Alexis Penney, Colin Self and Bailey Stiles, initially formed as a mutant drag house around a series of monthly drag and performance revues conceived for Santos Party Haus in the summer of 2012, after performing together at various nightlife venues during that time, including nights like Normalize, CLUMP and Westgay. Though documentation of that period is sporadic, here is a partial video document of CHEZ DEEP IV (10.10.2012), and associated flyers and other media from Chez Deep’s first year.
