The Harem of No One: PAVYON @ The Glory
  • London Fringe

After our takeover in January, it's time to prepare another cabaret show with loads of singing and more to put on top. This time, we will be channeling the Pavyon. You might remember we did spotlight the Gazino culture of Turkey: the glamourous night clubs and restaurants of high society. Pavyons are another very important part of Turkish nightlife, albeit with differences to Gazino. Pavyons feature decadance, extravagance and debauchery. Clients -who are almost exclusively all men- are greeted by consommatrices and entertained by singers. While also at times are hot spots for the turkish underworld, they are also places where cis and trans women work together - and exploited by men. As usual, we are channeling this culture in our way, The Harem of No One style, subverting it, twisting it and at the same time getting rid of the toxic heteronormative masculinity. Your performers for tonight are Darlink Dick, Martha Barbra, Tahini Molasses and for the first time at Harem's stage Sissy Sis. Expect the soundtrack of this night to be campy, sleezy, dirty, melancholic -to the point of masochist- and dramatic turkish music. There is nothing like it! Toby Kind will be behind the decks, but with a surprise look. Come join us for exquisity, sleaziness and to be teleported into this colorful and kitsch world ! The Glory is a queer venue run by queer people, for queer people and their allies. We operate a zero-tolerance policy towards homophobia, transphobia, racism, misogyny and discrimination of any kind. Be respectful or you will be asked to leave. Strictly no office, hen or stag parties allowed. Tables will be first come first served !!

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
