In 2020 the world was shaken by Covid19 in many ways. For Kilke it meant she had to leave the production of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert in Florida instantly. She ended up back in in the Netherlands after 13 years, where her grandmother turned a 100 years old – in isolation. Kilke decided to share what this was like, by making a documentary which was broadcasted on Dutch TV. A portrait about the time of Covid19, the impact of the lockdown and the power of love.
Kilke will be performing as onstage Swing in Priscilla Queen of the Desert for NCL until November 2020
Based on the smash-hit movie, PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT is the heartwarming, uplifting adventure of three friends, a glamorous Sydney-based performing trio who agree to take their show to the middle of the Australian outback. They hop aboard a battered old bus (nicknamed Priscilla) searching for love and friendship and end up finding more than they ever imagined. With a dazzling array of outrageous Olivier and Tony award-winning costumes and a hit parade of dance floor favorites, this wildly fresh and funny musical is a journey to the heart of FABULOUS!
Kilke is playing the role of Tanya in Abba’s hit musical Mamma Mia! for RCCL and loving it! Rehearsals started in 2018 in in Miami, Florida – followed by a tour around some of the most beautiful and interesting spots on earth – until spring 2019.
In 2018 Kilke will be presenting and creating two brand new radio programmes on the digital channel Women’s Radio Station. She will speak to the elder generation of our society, finding out what we can learn from those who have lived.
