Are you ready to CAMP. IT. UP?

What is CAMP?

CAMP is the Coalition of Angry Macho Pussies, the pro Wrestling cabaret night you didn’t know you needed! CAMP is a collaboration between Rich Tea (Fist Club, Leeds Queer Wrestling) and Luca (Brokeback Yorkshire, King’s Chambers) who take cabaret and infuse it with the camp spectacular of pro wrestling. We’re here to change the cishet domination of the pro wrestling scene by platforming local queer wrestlers and the best of alternative drag in the North!

We are committed to giving queer performers the platform to CAMP. it. up by celebrating queer identity, joy and silliness! CAMP is a place to experiment, be weird, be authentic. The same goes for the audience – we want to bring together LGBTQ+ community in a joyful and spectacular way.

What to expect…

An actual wrestling ring showcasing matches, burlesque, drag acts, cut scenes in the crowd, audience interaction, ring babes of all/no genders, 2 hosts – one good, one evil, to guide you through the night. Prepare to cheer, boo and witness a night out you’ve never experienced before!

Sunday 3rd March: Goner – Marikiscrycrycry

Doors – 6.00PM
Start Time – 6.30PM duration 55mins no interval.
The Goner is someone who is doomed with no chance of survival—bound to death, a lost and hopeless case.

This work follows this figure on a sensuous, suspense-filled and fearsome choreographic journey into the psychological depths of the Goner’s horror.

What to expect…

Lightly touching on the topics of abuse, Caribbean migration, alienation, belonging, addiction, and violence, Goner is utilising the formal tools of solo authorship and the aesthetics of horror to create radical visual culture from the marginalised perspective, and to tease out and establish a Black tradition of horror for the live context. How do we look at culturally specific narratives against a backdrop of thrilling, bloody, and psychological horror?
Who knows
but there will be blood
