‘Politically charged social critique with powerful feminist undertones.’

Fancy Chance invites you aboard her debut solo show: a globe-trotting, time-travelling mini-spectacle – with turbulent polemics and unexpectedly poignant stop-offs – taking you from her humble origins as Korean refugee to darling of the London cabaret scene. In-flight entertainment will include offbeat comedy, original song, and outrageous film. Directed by Nathan Evans.

Fancy’s work incorporates burlesque, drag, circus, and live art. In 2009 she was crowned ‘Alternative Miss World’ and in 2010 ‘London’s Top Tranny’. She was also shortlisted for ‘Best Alternative Performer’ in the 2013 London Cabaret Awards, was recently part of Live Lates for Penny Woolcock’s Utopia and is currently collaborating on Dr. Carnesky’s Incredible Bleeding Woman playing at Soho Theatre this Christmas.

Age Recommendation: 16+
Running Time: 60 mins
