PROGRAMME DAY BY DAY

AUSFORM MICRO-FEST 2015!

‘make up’

  1. to build, to create
    2. to invent, to fabricate
    3. to apply cosmetics

AUSFORM MICRO-FEST 2015 – a 4 day burst of progressive performance, live music, parties and workshops. A palette of colour, noise and mess, of sideways thinkers and ultra egos each with their own approach to transformation. Make yourself up and join us for a micro-morphosis…

DAVID HOYLE PRESENTS FUTURE PERFECT 

7.30pm – 8.30PM | The Cube | £10

Far out beyond the boundaries of cabaret, witness David Hoyle tear a stiletto heel through the fabric of time and space. One last time, for one unmissable hour, see what’s coming –  told in rage, sound, vision, paint and song. The Future Ends Tonight.

Post-drag, post-gender, impossible to beat, performance avalanche and avant-garde legend David Hoyle’s Future Perfect Shows played to a packed Royal Vauxhall Tavern in London on five Thursdays – each week a different, hilarious vision of the future, with costumes by design sensation Rick Owens. Now it’s your turn, Ausform. Still no script, still no limits. Join Us.

Future Perfect: you will have seen…change will have come…this will have been the night of nights.

Produced by Nick Blackburn

Join us at The Cube as the whining drag punkette Many Monika crashes the party with her band to bring you her show of DIY melancholy. With support from Tear Jerk, headmistress Isadora Vibes and prom-gone-wrong queen Roxytocin

The perfect way to get ready for your evening with BID, Ausform, or a chance encounter…*

*participants should bring their own make up to the workshop. No need to buy anything new! Just bring whatever make up or facepaint you have at home, and anything else that looks like it might be good to stick on your face or wrap round your head.
