Cutting across theatre and performance of the past 150 years, the authors will be offering tantalising glimpses into their work on sadomasochistic pleasures, gender-queer choreographies, decadent environments, and countercultural chaos, as well as twenty-first century live and digital artworks.

This event will be followed by a drinks reception, and there will be plenty of time to meet the authors and enjoy some informal discussion over a glass of something divine.

Please note: Tickets for the evening’s Staging Decadence salon needs to be booked separately via the event page.

Generously supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
