Abstract or Description:

Fabulous filigree, garments of disease, rumours of a colossal fatberg clogging the city’s sewers… For this special event – part of Queen Mary’s “Quorum” series – we celebrated the materiality of decadence on stage: its spectacular costuming, spatialisation, spillages, eccentricities, and the detailing of voluptuous rot.

The night featured live performances from Hasard Le Sin, Sadie Sinner and Miss HerNia; screenings of work by jaamil olawale kosoko, Toco Nikaido and Angel Rose; an exhibition of decadent costume by Julia Bardsley; a performative presentation by Adam Alston – and rounded off with a roundtable discussion.

A Staging Decadence event in collaboration with Quorum @ Queen Mary made possible thanks to the generous support of Goldsmiths, University of London, and Queen Mary, University of London.
