Peaches Christ’s BEAR-BARELLA starring Lady Bear & Peaches ChristN/C 18+
Friday 10 October
San Francisco drag superstar, filmmaker, and cult (movie) leader Peaches Christ returns to the UK with an out-of-this world event celebrating the 1968 sci-fi masterpiece Barbarella, directed by Roger Vadim. Jane Fonda got her first workout (sans spacesuit!) during the opening credits of this campy, widescreen space opera about a sexy, 41st-century adventuress.
But Peaches Christ isn’t merely screening the film, she’s inviting you to join her and her cast of drag aliens for a fully immersive and interactive experience when she presents her stage-show parody ‘Bear-barella’ – happening live at GFT! Starring San Francisco’s own Lady Bear in the title role, a larger than life queen who’s tasked with saving the Queerniverse from a wicked, knife wielding villainous, ‘The Great Tired’, played by Peaches herself. Additional roles will be filled by fellow San Francisco bon-vivants Hugz Bunny and Shemantha, UK performers the Ultra Violets, Cheddar Gawjus and Anna Phylactic. Joining them will be some of Glasgow’s finest drag talent, led by drag club MENERGY’s overlord Guillotina Munter.
Ms. Christ would like to strongly encourage audience members to dress up in their best Barbarella inspired couture and begin practicing for the Orgasmatron Challenge where Peaches will be inviting the best dressed attendees up onstage for the chance to be publicly pleasured.
The original 1968 film will screen after the 50 minute pre-show performance.
This event is part of the nationwide BFI Sci-Fi season ‘Days of Fear and Wonder’ and is supported by Film Hub NWC, proud to be a partner of the Film Audience Network. Produced by Bren O’Callaghan in collaboration with Outburst Queer Arts Festival Belfast, New Media Scotland, Glasgow Film Theatre and Cornerhouse, Manchester.
Tickets cost £12 full price / £10 concession / £11/9 CineCard holders
