Event Description

Critically acclaimed musical satirists make a triumphant return to Brighton Spiegeltent with their out-of-this-world Edinburgh Fringe smash hit. Riotous original songs in this hysterical catwalk through the quagmire of current affairs.

“Clever, spiky and humane” **** ( The Scotsman).

Sequin-clad satirical weirdos Bourgeois and Maurice write songs that stick in your head like bloodstains in your nice new carpet. Their world is a sexy, stomping, politically charged echo chamber. A highly theatrical kaleidoscope of current affairs, moral confusion and slippery social commentary.

Event Description

A darkly satirical musical catharsis.”The United Kingdom of 2017 is disunited. We seem to be searching for tribal roots but everything is monetised, polarised, divided and frightening. We are a nation of individuals wounded by the very things we are told will keep us safe.\r\nThe Brexorcist examines the social, political, ideological and emotional factors that led us to where we are today. It does this with art in many forms which allows the artists and perhaps the audience to process the overwhelming pain and sadness which seem to have become the norm. This material has been crafted around a magickal ritual designed to rid this convulsing society of its demons.\r\nThe result is a beautiful, hilarious and frightening collection of work, from some of the best songwriters, performers and artists in the city.\r\nWritten and directed by Sam Hewitt with original material and performances from Tim Leopard, Tim Harbridge, Glen Richardson, Dave Suit, Eric Drass, Jason Pegg and The Private Sector. Starring Seth Morgan, Graham Darg and Frank France with heavenly singing from Sarah Gardner and the Dulcitones.

Event Description

Described as an esoteric St Trinian’s for the queer cabaret generation, Carnesky’s Finishing School has been helping people discover and hone their creative talent since 2010. Artist and headmistress Marisa Carnesky has helped launch a whole new generation of bold, transgressive performers onto London’s mercurial alternative cabaret/performance art scene and is now bringing her legendary school to Brighton Fringe, the spiritual home of radical stagecraft.

Fresh from an acclaimed 3-month Soho residency, Carnesky’s Finishing School occupies a unique space in which emerging and novice performers receive a level of support, guidance and mentoring that is simply is not accessible elsewhere.

The resulting 'Graduation Night' show, hosted by Marisa Carnesky, will include solo performances created over a 5-day course, special guest performances from former students, an alternative stage school disco and countless other delights.

Join us for what has in recent years established itself as one of the performance art world's most exciting and unpredictable showcases.

Come and witness the results of this intensive performance art journey! Watch talent as it becomes emergent in front of your very eyes! Gasp at the originality and scope of cabaret's latest pretenders!

If you are interested in booking a place on the course, please visit www.carnesky.com for details.
