The Highgate theatre’s Postcard’s Festival of circus and cabaret is reaching its conclusion this weekend. So there is just time to check in with a couple of performances before Saturday’s closing night cabaret hosted by Collectif. But look out too for Empress Stah’s Iconoclasm Mass tonight. It fuses circus, cabaret and live art to expose religious doctrine.
Tearing into the heart of religious doctrine with fury and wit, this sermon of dissent, emceed by ferocious hostess Virgin Xtravaganzah, serves up exquisitely imagined alternatives and radical insight, encompassing circus, cabaret and live art. Artists that inspired or collaborated on elements of this work include electroclash rockstar Peaches, seminal body artist Ron Athey, French intellectual Georges Bataille, cult musical trio The Tiger Lillies and punk poet Lydia Lunch. Age Recommendation: 18+
