Wirework @ Tristan Bates Theatre | England | United Kingdom

Set in a remote South African village, a reclusive older woman, outrages her Afrikaans neighbours by collaborating with a local shepherd to turn her family home into an extraordinary piece of art.

Based on the true story of Helen Martins and Koos Malgas and their creation, ‘The Owl House’.

Inspired by images from pictures and postcards, their world becomes dominated by form and colour. In her struggle to find the ‘light’, Helen looks towards Mecca as Koos faces the reality of apartheid prejudice and survival.

Woof @ Royal Vauxhall Tavern

Two years ago, two of the UK’s now finest Drag Kings simultaneously began their cabaret journey, attempting to take it by storm. Through their struggles and barriers as two trans bodies, and in the case of Chiyo – being QTIPOC, these two best friends have decided it’s time to take on a night of their own.

INTRODUCING… WOOF. The night for the stray mutts. It’s time to redefine what is sexy.

WOOF: Redefining Sexy is a smoking hot celebration of alternative/neo burlesque and drag; serving sex and smut. It’s a platform showcasing performers who do not fit the cookie cutter mold of the typical definition of sexy! [Read: those who do not fit the mold of skinny able-bodied cis white man].

We exist to dismantle these barriers that tell us we aren’t good enough.


Special WOOF performances from:

Rhys’ Pieces

Rubyyy Jones

Zayn Phallic

Soroya Marchelle

Hosted by straight up sexy, Chiyo!

Plus performances from Woof creators, Chiyo and Benjamin Butch!

Smut Bucks will also be available to buy on the door so you can tip the performers if you wish!

If you are a lover of underwear, sexxx, dismantling the cis white patriarchy, neo-burlesque and alternative drag, WOOF.

Doors open at 7pm
Tickets £8/£6 advance and £10/£8 on the door.
