New Queers on the Block: Oozing Gloop - The Gloopshow episode 2: GLOOPTOPIA!
After the rip-roaring success of The Gloopshow, the world's only autistic green drag queen is back with a new language of political hope... and a positive projection into our psychic landscape.
Travel from the tangible to the fantastical via vigils, chants and images of a sinful, saintly and spectacular nature. This time, Oozing Gloop is armed, indelibly, with the doctrine of Commucracy: Communist Democracy.
People with Aspergers Syndrome struggle with social imagination, finding it easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism: Gloop has returned to slay these twin dragons with one fell swoop.
"There is an undeniable power in Gloop's presence" The List
Oozing Gloop is the only disabled artist in the UK using drag in conjunction with chaos magic to engineer public political spectacle. In their unique brand of “queer alchemy” the personal is political, and everything a body experiences is used to challenge the profane geometry that stops those experiences being better.
GLOOPTOPIA! will include a relaxed space and info for neuro-diverse audiences.
British Sign Language interpretation will also be provided.
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 cafe-bar with DJ Xzan on the decks.
