UBU’S REFUSE

This performance is inspired by ‘Ubu Roi’: a surrealist play by Alfred Jarry from the 1890s that was banned from the stage due to its grotesquery and its disruption of social norms. Comedic, bizarre and wild; a satirical look at greed, power and self gratification.

PICKIN’ A CHICKEN

The first part of this performance satirizes kitsch burlesque and the second part introduces neo-burlesque. Oil, egg and flour are rubbed into the body in a highly suggestive manner establishing a sexual and grotesque depiction of deep frying chicken.

I FOUND A FOX

This act was made for the burlesque stage; classic burlesque (performed to some crime jazz) and becoming more wild as it moves to an instrumental of Foxy Lady. Using the head piece as an extension of the body, Spielfuchs explores her animal side through sexuality and playfulness. The finale is a gunshot and a rush of red fabric.

CALL FOR 5318008

A blend of interactive media and burlesque, “Call for 5318008” is an anarchic cabaret, a cacophony of mobile phone ringtones and a strictly choreographed dance by an under-rehearsed ensemble. A collaboration between Lucille Spielfuchs and Grant Moxom.

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN TELL?

A feminine piece exploring gender roles and gender presumptions. This piece uses delicate movements, black ribbons on feather fans, an explosion of flour (causing a cloud of dust) and, for the final reveal, a prosthetic penis.
