work is inspired by early 20th century cabaret scenes, in an era when stage
performances hinted a critical, political agenda and pushed for sexual
liberation through satire, poetry, music performance and songs. Divine
decadence, darling invites the audience through surreal, staged scenarios in an
empty nightclub where the audience are introduced to five performers living
with disabilities. They perform authentic and political testimonies, questioning
self-ownership, bodily integrity
control of one's own body and sexuality, while simultaneously celebrating
the amorous and decadent cabaret universe. The intimacy and sensuality that
people with disability embody, is seldom spoken of in society. Using cabaret
references against the history of freakshow and todays idea of the ‘perfect body’ the work tends to deconstruct the representations of
disability and breaking long-lasting taboos.
