The closing party for London’s only pan-city queer arts festival, And What? Queer Arts Festival, Haunted Butts plunged audiences into the depths of their nether-most regions, taking them on a journey through sex, death and the afterlife.
Taking the horror, fear and enjoyment this most fundamental body part can inspire, and combining it with the excitement of horror films and feat itself, Haunted Butts was a night to celebrate that which unites us.
Curated by artist Gareth Cutter, leading queer and alternative artists presented pop-up performances, visual art, a “designer butt” station and DJ sets late into the night, including international performance artist and body anarchist, MOUSE, the ferocious triple-threat Lucy McCormick (Best Performer Award Winner, Dublin Fringe 2017), international actor and performance artist, Lasana Shabazz (Scottee’s Putting Words In Your Mouth), trans-aggressive tattooist and tarot reader, Oozing Gloop, bouffon clown drag-troupe The Fems, visual artist Ranulph Redlin, and music from DJ Mikey XCX (Shake Yes Dix / Douchebag / Pink Glove).
Landing just a week before Halloween, it was a night for the curious, the filthy, and the fearless, a hair-raising evening of thrilling downstairs divination, demonic colonic possession and more.
