Unfiltered taboo-busting set from a cabaret icon
Multi award-winning cabaret queen Amber Topaz emerges, draped in red harem pants and a hood resembling a vulva. Complete with uterus waist-chain, her outlandish outfit sets the tone for the remainder of her uncensored spectacle of a show. This comedy cabaret comments on everything from modern dating and social media to the phenomenon of the female body. Packed with original songs and kooky characters, this unfiltered frenzy of a show can barely keep up with itself.
Greying Still Slaying is a retelling of Topaz’s life as a woman, and she is unabashed and unafraid of touching on several taboo topics. Despite some unsureness at times, Topaz has an undoubted ability to carry an audience. From a whole song dedicated to masturbation to a masterclass on finding the clitoris, she takes her room on a wild ride they won’t forget in a hurry.
Voodoo Rooms, until 28 August, 9.10pm.
