Haus of Lies invites you to *DRAG RAVE* to bear witness to the splendour of our Divine gender-blenders. Come join us in a subversive dimension for an evening of drag-raving beyond space and time, where the old binary constructs of society have been dissolved, melted and smushed together to reform a new space, where androgyny and ambiguity reign, leaving gender, sexuality, race and class irrelevant. A place where the festishistic sexual deviants of the old world are celebrated and rejoiced; where beauty is found in the hair on a woman’s body, in the tear of mans’ eye and in the courage it takes to openly live as you are, a world where everyone is accepted and embraced as the God/dess' they are.
Wherever you exist on the spectrums of gender and sexuality you are welcomed to an evening of immersive art, music and performance, where you are encouraged to freely express the fluidity of your identity and nature, from your brightest to darkest desires at Bristols first ever drag rave.
Lose the illusion of dualistic gender and let your inner beast run amok.
This show is a fusion of exhibition/live performance space/music event raising funds for 'Eleventh', UWE's Fine Art Degree show!
Exhibiting and show-casing works from up and coming local artists in fields of performance, video and sculpture alongside live post-drag performances with the opportunity for the audience to flaunt themselves on the runway. The night will conclude in proper Bristol fashion, with a knees up rave to get your feet stompin' and your bootys shaking.
