Guiding you on an intimate fleshy foray through the parallel universes of 90s club culture and performative theatre, Australia’s cult pioneer of queer performance art, Glitta Supernova brings her multi nominated, award winning show Body Map to Adelaide on Saturday 18 November as part of the 2017 Feast Festival.
An overview into an authentic human experience, a fun nudie run through a different lens. Tales of the 80s and 90s, Sydney subculture and beyond. This is cabaret storytelling sprinkled with comedy and a dash of soul food. The personal highway to our soul is in multilane gridlock, diversions to the self at every exit. Navigating who we are has never been tougher, access is blocked with the promise of beauty and perfection.
Psychedelic, satirical, personal and political storytelling, a hybrid mix of bent burlesque and experimental theatre that’s packed to the rafters with puns, punches and possibilities. Body Map is a deep dive across the consumer bordered planet and into our inner being, highlighting our capacity to transform despite the odds.
One of Australia’s key underground culture makers, and creator of Australia’s first burlesque club, Gurlesque – Glitta’s working class Dutch roots, with an anti-establishment message wants to reach in and shake you up. This is outsider art without trying to be, this is what happens when an original 80’s punk makes it through the vortex into 2017.
Glitta has thrived independently creating & producing originality for over 20 years and this show has more anarchy, bingles and chaos than you could poke a selfie stick at. Body Map has amassed a total of 6 nominations and 3 awards including Best in Fringe, Best Cabaret and Most Outstanding Performer.
“A Tiki tour like no other through the highs, lows and bouncy bits of the life of an Ozzie party girl in the club scene of the 90’s.” – Theatreview (NZ)
