Dare to enter a deviant realm of peepshows, smoking godheads and talking shopping trolleys.
Prepare for a collision between epic drama and orgiastic ritual. A Wagnerian cult ride roughshod through their master’s Ring-cycle operas...will you be among their chosen initiates?
BDSM, techno, krautrock and cabaret add grist to the Germanophile mill, sparking a bawdy libretto, an experimental score and a host of elaborate props.
Bridging visual art and theatre, this frenzied reinterpretation of George Bernard Shaw’s essay The Perfect Wagnerite is for mischief-seekers and closet Marxists alike.
Contains adult themes, strobe lights and partial nudity. This is a non-seated performance with chairs available on request.
