YUMMY: How to Make a Western is a live cinematic experience. During lockdown 2020, the award-winning cabaret ensemble YUMMY wrote a brand new show - a spaghetti western spoof exploring westward expansion and the perils of manifest destiny. This production was shot as a feature-length film and will be screened in full with hilarious audience engagement (think Rocky Horror screenings). With cinematography by Chris Bennett and lighting design by Jacinta Anderson, this production is a stunning hybrid of cabaret, theatre and film aesthetics.
Narrated by iconic Tiwi drag superstar Foxxy Empire, and featuring Valerie Hex, Hannie Helsden, Jandruze, Bendy Ben, Zelia Rose, and Aysha Buffet, this project sees YUMMY growing in new ways: new collaborations, new mediums, and a new take on political cabaret. Saddle up, partner!

YUMMY is a company that continues to push inclusivity across gender and sexuality, and it is refreshing to see a diverse range of performers represented on stage. The show is entirely delicious. **** Out In Perth, 2020
