A multi-disciplinary, queer, contemporary performance. At this Church we celebrate circus through the lens of disability, we worship trans beauty, we kneel for poet preacher queens, and we receive revelations from the Satanic Temple of Los Angeles. Subversive, touching, and hilarious.
Featuring performances by circus artist and disability activist Sarah Houbolt (TEDx, Festival of Dangerous Ideas), trans non-binary drag clown Marlena Dalí (The Oyster Club), poet priestess Caramelsaucemel (Lewa, Bubu), and post-structuralist queer performance artist momento moreofme. Also featuring video visitations from the chapter heads of The Satanic Temple of Los Angeles.

"The Oyster Club: All the things that you hope for in an underground, queer-friendly, avant-garde immersive cabaret night. A joyful disregard for the 4th wall. Acts on the bar, immersed in water, lounging in the atrium. A fuck-you attitude. A warm inclusive vibe for humans of every gender and persuasion. Marlena stalks the stage willfully ignoring any residual cringe that Australian audiences feel towards a North American accent. Bent. Intimate. Artful. Book early. Get a good seat." - Mike Finch (co-founder Circus Monixide & former artistic director Circus Oz) referring to "The Oyster Club" a cabaret show created and produced by Marlena Dalí
