Fresh from the success of their Brighton Fringe Award-winning debut The Gloopshow, Oozing Gloop is back with their brand new show co-commissioned by The Marlborough for New Queers on the Block.
Oozing Gloop is the only disabled artist in the UK combining drag and chaos magic to engineer public spectacle. In their unique brand of “queer alchemy” the personal is political.
People with Aspergers Syndrome struggle with social imagination, finding it easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism. Now Gloop has returned to slay these twin dragons with one fell swoop!
In their exhaustingly exuberant solo performance, Gloop sets out a manifesto for Commucracy (communist democracy), and offers a new language of political hope for these troubled times.
GLOOPTOPIA! includes integrated British Sign Language interpretation by Katie Fenwick.
Stay on after the show for a Theatre Club discussion led by theatre critic Maddy Costa. There will also be a post-show chill out area in the Attenborough Centre bar with DJ Xzan on the decks.
