Tentacular Spectacular

13 – 17 Jun 2023


Battersea Arts Centre , 77A Upper Trinity Street , London, SW11 5TN

Jerwood New Work Fund 2022 artist Oozing Gloop presents, Tentacular Spectacular

Curated by the world’s premier, green, autistic drag queen Oozing Gloop, Tentacular Spectacular is an (ad)venture into networking networks of narrative, phobia, hope and utopia by showcasing the self made cryptids of 21st century trans* performers.

Oozing Gloop is joined by the architect of your eternal suffering, Olympia Bukkakis. Together, these Jesters of the new Dark Age will lure you through a psycho-sexual swamp of fester, rot & future relics.

Emerging from this decay are the fruitful offshoots of this tentacular undergrowth; Shrek666, Bonnie Bakeneko and a mystery guest artist working with themes of monstrosity & mulch.

Co-commissioned by Fierce, Battersea Arts Centre, Kampnagel and Take Me Somewhere

Supported with public funding from an Arts Council England’s Project Grant, the Jerwood New Work Fund, and part of the British Council’s International Collaboration Programme.
