Shesus (of multi-award winning foolish trio Shesus & the Sisters) is your drag king Missiah reincarnation. They are here to heal you. And give birth. And probably do some screaming. And if all goes to plan, YOU will confess. Shesus will be your guide, beard included, peering at things through the lens of the feminine. Not for the faint hearted, but neither is this world, so get on board .


Brigitte Aphrodite is a punk poet, musician, writer, theatre maker and feminist showgirl. During her formative years Brigitte toured extensively as a musician, alongside artists such as Kate Nash and Josie Long.  Most recently, she is best known for her critically acclaimed show My Beautiful Black Dog; a part gig, part theatre, punk musical exploring depression. It sold out at the Edinburgh Fringe and Southbank Centre, toured nationally and featured in the Guardian, Elle and on the BBC 10 O’clock News. Through the Wellcome Trust a workshop based around the show was developed and carried out in schools across the country. Brigitte’s expressive, multidisciplinary work has won her a loyal following, including the likes of Arthur Brown and Lauren Laverne.
