IF TROUBLE AND MISCHIEF IS ALL YOU LIVE FOR…

From the streets of our city to the realm of the damned, come dance with the devil.

Renowned singer and performer Paul Capsis (Black Rider: The Casting of the Magic Bullets) is a hero of perversity. Joined by the enigmatic iOTA (Lazarus) they conjure songs about a city’s angels and demons, desperate desires and murderous jealousies, while the ten plagues rain down on a cursed metropolis.

Startling visuals from filmmaker Natasha Pincus and music from axeman Jethro Woodward accompany Paul and iOTA as they burn through this cycle of urban tales, including tantalising takes on classics from Blondie, Bob Dylan, and Nina Simone.

This is gig theatre at its most adrenaline pumping. Join us on the wild side.
