Details

OxPHWOARd is a show celebrating the camp, queer, and eclectic – an explosion of neo and boundary-pushing cabaret: from the fierce and feisty to the silly and surreal. With a kitschy approach and a killer soundtrack, this charming show promises to gleefully annihilate preconceptions about gender, race, sexuality, and what it means to be sexy with a wry smile and a face full of glitter.

The world is full of incredible influences! From classic tv shows, to political heroes, to cultural movements – and we’re going to celebrate with a night of acts bringing these influences to life through cabaret! Featuring a range of performers of different shapes and sizes that will make you say “PHWOAR”! We’re asking you to think strong, think silly and think sexy.
