Cult of K*nzo

Sat 23 Mar 2019, 7.45pm, Theatre Deli, 202 Eyre St. S1 4QZ

The Cult of K*nzo is a theatre show that takes an insider’s look at consumer culture through the lens of fashion. It interweaves the stories of one woman’s lifelong desire for luxury and the young dream of becoming a fashion designer. In a world where ’you are who you wear’ The Cult of K*nzo looks at how high end designer brands create desire, the tension between inclusion and exclusion, and the mysterious allure of high end. Why do we want the things that we want? What’s in a brand?

"Here's Looking at UKIP"

Wed 27 & Thu 28 Mar 2019, 7.45pm, Theatre Deli, 202 Eyre St. S1 4QZ

Here’s Looking at UKIP is a show about an identity crisis, what it means to be British, a patriot, a small nation with a brutal past and an uncertain future. Is Great Britain really all that great? Is it OK to be proud of the British Empire? Can you love a country that does not love you back? An unflinching, funny, furious look at Britain’s problems with “foreigners”, historical amnesia and delusions of grandeur, to try and figure out how we got here - and where we’re going next.
