MOP THE HOUSE
Mop the House: A Short Guide to Vogue
by Garry Robson
An intimate extravaganza for two actors, one DJ, an audience and a runway that could go anywhere.
“And once upon a tippitty top time the Mother looked and saw the children of the House of Krip and saw it was good. And she said go forth and display outstanding amounts of nonchalant fabulousness. Be fierce and let the people understand the true mystery of Vogue.”
Oi. Nish the chat. I’m the writer and when I say anywhere, I mean, mainly it’ll go skittering and scattering through Vogue culture as Daisy Darling, Billi Bones and me rob our way through everything we find in search of a Mother, a home and a good story to tell.
“Mopping. You go into a store and just look, look for whatever you wanna see, look for whatever, Mopping is stealing, general stealing, however it’s done, it’s stealing. Words, music, moves and of course clobber!”
This show is the latest stage of Fittings’ sashay into the world of Vogue culture. Melding history with fantasy and dance with urban sign. Featuring house beats with a punk sensibility and a lot of BAD language.
Mop the House is a brand new co-commission by DaDaFest, Homotopia and The Arena Theatre. Supported by Arts Council England and quite likely YOU!
Mop the House: A Short Guide to Vogue previewed at Arena Theatre, Wolverhampton on 25th & 26th October 2018 and premiered at Unity Theatre Liverpool on 15th & 16th November as part of DaDaFest and Homotopia.
