Lady Vendredi- Baadass Blood Quest
Friday 30 August
Lady Vendredi’s Badass Blood Quest
Revenge has a new mistress…
You are invited to a neo-punk blaxploitation quest-ritual…marvel as Lady Vendredi raises the dead! Communes with the spirits at the crossroads of eternity! Fries up some chicken!
Lady Vendredi will whip you into shape with her funky moves – watch out she doesn’t steal your soul with her voodoo grooves!
Shocking savagery! Live music! Dancing!
Steady your nerves for an onslaught of possession, kidnap and Zombies! Spin into a frenzy with impromptu tap dance numbers! Freak out to the beat of the primitive drum! Gasp at horrific humiliation and the ultimate bloody revenge!
Combining traditional Haitian rhythms and Global Bass, experimental performance and Vodou ritual this is theatre as religious experience, fired by the power of animality, soaked in punk spirit and driven by a pumping live soundtrack.
Drawing on sources including classic exploitation films (from Japanese Pinky Violence to Blaxploitation), Jacobean revenge tragedies and dance practices of the West African Diaspora, Mas productions invites you to join us on this mythic journey beyond the cosmic mirror.
