San Francisco drag superstar and filmmaker Peaches Christ comes to Belfast’s Black Box on October 9, with an event celebrating the 1968 cult sci-fi classic ‘Barbarella’, starring Jane Fonda.
Not only is Peaches screening the film, but also she’s inviting you to join her stellar cast of San Fran drag stars as she presents her stage-show parody ‘Bear-barella’.
Don’t miss San Francisco’s own Lady Bear in the title role, a larger than life queen who’s tasked with saving the Queerniverse from a wicked, knife wielding villainous, ‘The Great Tired’, played by Peaches herself. Additional roles will be filled by fellow San Francisco bon-vivants Hugz Bunny and Shemantha, Ms. Christ would like to strongly encourage audience members to dress up in their best Barbarella inspired couture and begin practicing for the Orgasmatron Challenge where Peaches will be inviting the best dressed attendees up onstage for the chance to be publicly pleasured.
The original 1968 film will screen after the pre-show performance.
This event is part of the nationwide BFI Sci-Fi season ‘Days of Fear and Wonder’ and is supported by Film Hub NWC, proud to be a partner of the Film Audience Network. Produced by Bren O’Callaghan in collaboration with Outburst Queer Arts Festival Belfast, New Media Scotland, Glasgow Film Theatre and Cornerhouse, Manchester.
