For one night only, Rich Mix and the Staging Decadence project are teaming up to bring you a salon-style evening of performances by Lucy McCormick, Darkwah*, and Nando Messias, talks by Giulia Palladini, Ben Walters, Owen Parry and Adam Alston, and the delectable sonorities and emceeing prowess of Sadie Sinner.

* Due to unforeseen circumstances, Selina Thompson is no longer able to perform in tonight’s show. Instead, we welcome the fabulous Darkwah!

Expect a heady mix of opulence, trash and panache as we explore what it means to enact and embody decadence in 2022.

This event will be following a panel discussion celebrating the launch of a special issue of the journal Volupté on ‘Decadence and Performance’.

This is a 16+ event.

Please note: Tickets for Volupté launch and reception: Decadence and Performance need to be booked separately via the event page.

Generously supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

This is an unreserved seated event.
