Your host; queer, fat, femme cabaret icon Yana Alana brings together a fierce line-up of dance, circus, drag, comedy and performance artists in the world premiere of Fuck Fabulous.
Serving neo-punk, anti-glamour realness, this cabaret variety show is a protest against the commodification of queer culture and a collective reimagining of what it means to be queer and fabulous. It’s a finger up to the mainstream ownership of queer and femme and a celebration of those queer artists and allies too often left out of the picture.
This show embraces female-masculinity, rejoices in gender-queer and trans visibility and celebrates femme identity in diverse bodies. Featuring comedian Krishna Istha, performance artist Nicci Wilks, circus icon Jess Love, dance duet Glitter & Snatch, aerial contortionist Seth Sladen, Drag King Koko Ma$$, drummer Bec Matthews and queen of queer cabaret Yana Alana. Fuck Fabulous is a protest party. A homage to our queer elders and a manifesto of hope that together we can create queer new worlds that value difference and diversity.
