As well as organising Quiltbag Cabaret, Ann Domoney also performs a one-woman queer feminist cabaret show. She blends bittersweet songs with wry feminist comedy, and asks some important questions: Why are women given more encouragement to identify with fruit than with other women? What should you wear during a zombie apocalypse? And where are all the bisexual pirates?
Ann performed at Quiltbag Cabaret on Saturday 8th February 2014 and 11th July 2014.
Lashings of Ginger Beer Time is a Queer Feminist Burlesque Collective. Combining songs, dancing, stand-up and sketches, luxe Victoriana drag with thigh-high fetish-boots, upbeat musical theatre optimism with 21st-century political rage, this is music hall for the internet age. Going back to the politically-charged roots of Burlesque, they aim to provide titillation for the brain by entertaining and challenging audiences in equal measure.

Vaudevillainy by Sebastienne
Sebastienne Stardust wasn’t always one of the bad guys; but she has always been fabulous. As a member of feminist burlesque collective Lashings of Ginger Beer Time (www.lashings.org), she wowed the crowds with her personal blend of politics, playfulness, and punchy vocal power. But thanks to the dark temptations (and superlative writing talents) of fellow-Lasher Galatea Gorgon, Sebastienne has come to realise: the bad guys *always* get the best songs. And the best outfits. So now she’s coming out of the closet – a villainness, and proud!
Sebastienne performed at Quiltbag Cabaret on 15th March 2014.
