BoyfriendRobotique IS the cutting edge. They are a troupe of five, comprised of gay straight and trans performers who put on a show fusing vaudeville and DaDa. For inspiration they draw on the Surrealists, the Cockettes, Jean Genet and the Spice Girls; performing a full on collision of the most beautiful and the most mundane. Previously they have re-interpreted Disney numbers (dressed as flowers in breast bindings) whilst sweeping the floor and have also staged a glam rock funeral dirge. Their shows are an attempt at undermining every cherished notion of what a "good show" should be, as such you will hear dialogue to make John Waters blush, witness choreography reminiscent of spiders having seizures, and enjoy the flimsy production values of a high school play. Truly BoyfriendRobotique is the revolution!
