2024 Artists:

Vidya Divakaran
Vidya is a fresh faced stand up/musical comedian/slug-masked-clown, with a style that’s upbeat, personal and zany. Mainly musing on identity, dating as a brown woman, and internet culture, she brings the energy of catching up with your bestfriend. Vidya also co-hosts East London alt-night, Soft Play Area.

Bard The Beholder
Bard is London’s masked extraterrestrial drag creature conjuring worlds within words. Using eco-conscious costuming, stand-up comedy, and movement, Bard engages themes of migration, history and horror to explore their lived experience as a South-East Asian transmasculine person. As seen in The Vault’s Witches of Oz and Mulan Rouge, as well as cabaret’s finest shows by The Enby Show, The Bitten Peach, and beyond… hide your skinsuits and tales of old, Bard will consume tales for you to behold.

Izzy Alright
Initially coming from a background in avant garde theatre and movement, Izzy has been performing in the London Drag and Cabaret scene for the past three years. With a pull to create highly visual pieces, Izzy is returning to the medium of theatre and performance art, using experimental methods of staging and creation to explore all our existential questions about life through absurdity, comedy and campery.

Krystyna & Sabina (Kasia Kuzka & Mateusz Piekarski)
A fanatical movement duo. They work across dance, theatre and performance art, often reflecting on their queer, Polish upbringing and life in London. Their recent work has included: damp and housing conditions, Polish wedding rituals, sugar in post-Soviet countries and Mushroom picking societies. They are guided by camp, grotesque and humorous gestures. Performed: Lilian Baylis Studio Theatre, Ugly Duck, Chisenhale Dance, SET Studios, Metroland Cultures, Anya Linden Studio Theatre.

The Magic Lady
Freddie Hayes is an alternative comedian and puppeteer. Known for her surreal, prop-heavy and extremely daft style, she draws inspiration from absurd characters in her own life and popular culture. Regularly, she makes bizarre and unusual puppet characters for her performances and handles private commissions for comedians and theatre makers. Freddie is currently working on outrageous character comedy The Magic Lady. The Magic Lady (otherwise known as Claire Voyante) is a powerful, deluded, reckless woman, with an 80s cabaret aesthetic reminiscent of Glenn Close or Cilla Black.

Stuck In The Lift is a development programme with a focus on supporting East London nightlife artists and work. Elevate East are interested in supporting their vision and practice, by giving space, time and cash to work that traditionally exists in the East London nightlife scene. The goal is to create a playground and network for artists and their performance practices – cabaret, performance, live art, drag, multidisciplinary work (and beyond!) who have experiments, ideas or material to test and play.
