-------------------------------

Welcome to The Double R Club an evening of mystery & nightmares inspired by the films of David Lynch
Expect a darkly surreal cocktail of
"Damn fine" Cabaret where
"Restless nights and uneasy dreams go with the territory..."

Think:

the finger-clicking jazz ambience of cult TV show Twin Peaks,
the absurdist monochrome machine world of Eraserhead...
From the dark underbelly of Mulholland Drive,
to the surreal small-town madness of Blue Velvet
A dark and troubling cabaret dream from another place, all served with humour
"Black, like midnight on a moonless night…"

Your aberrant host Benjamin Louche introduces THE underground cult cabaret phenomenon.
THIS MONTH'S LINEUP:

VICTORIA FALCONER

mystery woman is filled with secrets, will open doors that may never be closed…

RUBY WEDNESDAY

a perverse personification of song, but is that a smile, or a baring of teeth…?

FLABBERGAST THEATRE

a disembodied fragment from some inanimate dream made animate!

COCO MALONE

a voice like a knife through butter like a stranger weeping in the cellar of your heart…

ELIZA DELITE

a woman in trouble, lost in “another place” reaches out, to smother, or to seduce!

GRAEMEN

words give breath to a terrible figment, give flesh to the worst of all possibilities…

CHESKI KOBLER

an emissary from the world of objects will illuminate darkness and confusion!

ABNORMALIK

blooded nemesis to all other nemeses, antithesis of all that is right and true…

"London can't claim too many shows with the impressive longevity and sheer depravity of the RR Club" - The Londonist
"One of the edgiest nights in the capital." - The Independent
"You may be tickled in your most shameful fancies. You may be deeply offended. But you won't look away. Mad, bad and regrettable to miss: that pretty much summarises The Double R Club." - This Is Cabaret

-------------------------------

Robyn & Margaret hit the ring for round two of their anarchic series.... WITH....

Wrestling! Live band! Dance troupe! and an Entourage of puppets!

Kayfabing the Never Visible is the second chapter of Robyn & Margaret’s BGWMC residency. Kayfabing means blurring the line between truth and fiction, so pull on your lycra, leave whatever you thought was real behind and join the brawl!

Robyn & Margaret’s performances are surreal encounters steeped unrelentingly in British comedy. Their music swings between genres; ballad-grappling puppets, pile-driving funk grooves, and punchy punk songs.

Bouting with us will be the sensational Dani Dinger (Riposte), the mesmerising dance performances of Monika Błaszczak, Willa Faulkner and Marlen Pflueger (Mass Hysteria), and DJ Mucha Lucha taking us up to the final bell.

Set up your angles, pick your faces, heels and tweeners; no smarts, no smarks, no gas; a collection of stiffs, swerves, spots, served up by exóticos, monsters, technicians; someone’s gonna get a job, let’s meet our inner marks. Kayfabe the Never-Visible!
