Mooncup Theatre present: Genderland Cabaret – a night of spectacular performances
17 Love Lane
Marking the halfway point of GENDERLAND festival is our weird and wonderful Genderland cabaret! Join us for an evening of entertainment as our queer creatives take their time to shine.
Filla Crack is a live vocalist, hostess, cabaret performer and clumsy slag from Liverpool.
She spent many years living in the shadows of her Nan’s success (Cilla Black.) Filla has now launched her solo career and is on a mission to entertain eager crowds around the world, and on the Wirral too.
But she’s not your typical drag queen, Filla prides herself on inclusion and making all audience members feel welcome with her vocal tones and warm presence.
Felix Mufti is an activist, performer and writer signed with The Queerhouse London.
He co-founded ‘Transcend Theatre’ where he writes and acts in plays about authentic stories within the transgender community. He is an organiser for Trans Pride Liverpool, Transgender Day of Remembrance and is the Trans Rep for Socialist LGBT+ Network.
Trigger warnings- drugs, sexual references, violence implication.
Matting are a movement and live art collective, consisting of performers; Martin Shead, Alice Phillips and William Lang. Through solo and collaborative experimental movement, they aim to explore internal human moral, rhythms and suppressed emotion. Expressing their stories and general thoughts in a sense of improvised play, poem and dance.
Baba Yagga is a tongue-in-czech, Pundland Pageant Queen. Her grity accent will have you reaching for a Praguenancy-test. You’ll wake up to find she nicked your loo-roll and tried to bonk your dad. This foulmouthed immigrant really takes the culture out of culture shock. A drag, clown and burlesque performer with actual bohemian heritage, she is forver house-hunting, holding out for a suitable match, not so humble visa wedding. Her high octane dance routines, deeply amotional lip syncs and absurd comedy characters have floored the lost and unfortunate from Budapest to Bristol.
Bea Albanese is a trans lesbian attempting to balance living zero-waste with a lifelong health condition. Inspired by mythology and nature, she aims to create pieces that guide people through the blurred places that lie between illness and health, hope and fear, imagination and reality. A regular at Liverpool’s A Lovely Word open mic night, her recent performances include Secret Circus’ Pride cabaret event and Freedom Exhibition at Kampus, Manchester.
Bea will present:
Carol looks back at photographs from her childhood and cringes. She wishes she could reach into them, fix them from the inside. As she makes eye contact with a child that was supposed to be her, she wonders whether it can see her? Whether it recognises her? Do the subjects within a photo live their own secret lives while your back is turned, and is there a world beyond the edges of their frozen frames?
Wondering often leads to wandering, and when Carol finds herself traversing the queer realm of Genderland, she may finally have a chance to answer some of those questions.”
