Tramshed and Dr. Carnesky present Kabaret Kollective
A radically entertaining investigation into what makes performance popular and what makes artists into a community.
Plus a unique live conversation on stage between artists about what makes cabaret political, the notion of the collective in the arts and the making of scenes.
Hosted by Dr Marisa Carnesky
Marisa Carnesky is a British live artist and show-woman. She uses spectacular entertainment forms, including fairground devices and stage illusion, and draws on themes of contemporary ritual to investigate social issues from an ecofeminist perspective. Marisa founded Carnesky Productions which is a performance and theatre company responsible for original large and small scale interactive performance works.

Silly Man by Tallulah Haddon
Silly Man is the art tour you never knew you needed. Allow tour guide, Mr. Silly Man to immerse you in our exciting, new interactive installation. Part guided tour, part striptease. Expect art history, deep analysis and squirting.
Tallulah's work is invested in creating provocative queer futures, through magical comical worlds. Their work is often autobiographical and stems from an interest to use the personal as political. Weaving clown and surreal comedy with a body-based live art practice.
Trigger and Content Warnings: The performance includes mess, spit and nudity. This is a performance where you will be asked to physically participate. If you aren’t comfortable or are not able to, you can remain where you are. You can also leave at any point. There will be a camera in the space. You are not being recorded but you may watch the TVs at any point.
RhyssPieces! by Rhys Hollis
RhyssPieces is a one-person cabaret troupe from east London. They are a dancer; rapper; lip syncer; host; genderbending drag act and burlesque artist who is capable of terrific fierceness or exquisite softness.
Over the last 5 years they have risen through the London scene, having won 2018's Lipsync 1000 and being awarded the 2019s Best Variety Act (QX Awards). Their work draws from a variety of sources from mythology, pop culture, comedy movement and more. They take gender expression and play with it and believe that as a male-reading person of colour it’s important to challenge ideas of masculinity.
Oberon White is a gender-bending performance maker, music maker and fixture of London's queer cabaret scene. Their work has been supported by Help Musicians, Arts Council England and Roundhouse’s Resident Artist Scheme.
Their most recent feature-length solo performance winegod was presented to audiences across the UK. As a cabaret and drag performer, they are a fixture of London’s queer performance scene.
