Oozing Gloop and Esben Holk

Slide into a multi-sensory, psychosexual swamp inhabited by transgressive drag frog Oozing Gloop and some of her many fae-like friends.

Is it just me, or has the world totally lost its mind? As our climate collapses into a pre-humanity, primordial sludge, come bolthole into the butt holes of the sharpest savants around and see what these gender-non-conforming, neurodivergent drag artists have to offer.

Be amazed, appalled and enthralled as together we wander through this installation of performances and cursed objects from a new anthropomorphic age… it’s frog-memes, it’s goblins, it’s fashion baby! And all underground critters are welcome.

Featuring Olympia Bukkakis, Shrek666, Bonnie Bakeneko with set design by Jenkin Van Zyl. Wow!

Fierce Says

We love Oozing Gloop, and after there were queues out of the door to catch The Gloop Show at Fierce 2019, it seems you lot do too. Tentacular Spectacular is a late night performance installation featuring contributions from some of the boggiest trans drag artists around, with incredible inflatables by Jenkyn Van Zyl. The fact Fierce has been able to commission this work, at this scale, shows that not everything in the world is going wrong :)
