Join Curious Arts for the annual ARC is Curious cabaret, an evening of live performance, film and exhibition celebrating LGBTQIA+ culture.

Journey through ARC, starting in the cinema from 12pm with Queer Shorts, a thought-provoking programme of short films by women and non-binary people of colour. Then help us to launch our community co-created Protest Poster exhibition at 6.30pm as you make your way to the theatre for a night of Curious cabaret. Hosted by all singing, all raging, bona-fide performance legend David Hoyle, with performances from fierce one-person cabaret troupe RhyssPieces, hilarious comedy-cabaret performer Ashleigh Owen and more artists yet to be announced!

Performer Bios:

David Hoyle:

The Fireball of the cabaret apocalypse, David Hoyle is the original performance avalanche – an all singing, all raging bona-fide performance legend. He has appeared in his own Channel 4 TV series, in films and on-stages worldwide. The sensational anti-drag queen presents a very special performance. Expect polemic, pathos, provocative politicking and high comedy.


RhyssPieces is a one person cabaret troupe from east London. They are a dancer; rapper; lipsyncer; host ; genderbending drag act and burlesque artist who is capable of terrific fierceness or exquisite softness.

Ashleigh Owen:

Ashleigh Owen is an artist, performer, facilitator, streamer and podcast creator from Liverpool. She makes theatre about things that keep her awake at 3 in the morning. It challenges misconceptions and stereotypes linked to her lived experiences and identity. Her work comments on societal norms and injustices, to encourage social change. It has a lot of heart and sends audiences on an emotional journey using music, cabaret, comedy and parody.
