Cynthia Sobraty, NEUROMANTIC - a queer cabaret
NEUROMANTIC – a queer cabaret: is the first solo show from prolific qpoc Melbourne based performance artist Cynthia Sobraty. A palpable collision of theatre, storytelling, poetry, original music, drag, childhood and fantasy, this performance delves into the technicolour darkness of the liminal spaces of life.
From describing the ramifications of gender binaries as a queer acid trip version of Fred Rogers, to exploring white assimilation as a crooning grotesque pantomime of latex world leaders, Cynthia examines themes of nuance and radical vulnerability through a curious lens of whimsy and caricature. An exercise of taking up space and making the invisible visible.
