All performances are Pay What You Can

Curated by the world’s premier, green, autistic drag queen Oozing Gloop, Tentacular Spectacular is an (ad)venture into networking networks of narrative, phobia, hope and utopia by showcasing the self made cryptids of 21st century trans* performers. 

Oozing Gloop is joined by the architect of your eternal suffering, Olympia Bukkakis. Together, these Jesters of the new Dark Age will lure you through a psycho-sexual swamp of fester, rot & future relics. Emerging from this decay are the fruitful offshoots of this tentacular undergrowth; Shrek666, Bonnie Bakeneko and a mystery guest artist working with themes of monstrosity & mulch.
