Scrumptiously Weird!


One hour. One Woman. One Show. Performance artist, theatre designer, and questioning showgirl, Carletta The Great, takes you on a surreal trip behind the glitter curtain.

Served up on a bed of piping hot chaos, A Showgirl: Deconstructed celebrates the female form by drawing inspiration from Dadaism, dreamscapes, and the modern day feminist.

Carletta The Great re-constructs the notion of the showgirl, bringing depth and a new meaning to this often overlooked art-form. Avant-garde, visceral, and exposing, this live cinematic performance, directed by Willow J Conway, is beautiful, raw, and honest theatre at it’s best.
