When you think of cabaret you might think of bawdy strip teases, caricatures of femininity, and lewd jokes. Wet delivers much more than expectation, adding heart, intellect and genuine eroticism to proceedings.
A moist romp with an empowering feminist message
Settle in for an evening with an ensemble of five wet, female-identifying acts – including your MC, ‘Moist Cooch’ – who hail all the way from Australia to bring a late-night romp that bravely tackles difficult and emotive topics such as beauty standards, motherhood and race.
The show’s message of pussy empowerment and bodily ownership is well considered, and the nudity feels political rather than self-indulgent. Created by a group of women who call themselves The Hairy Godmothers, Wet understands that female bodies can be titillating as well as philosophical.
We are treated to original songs, modern choreography and a sexy science lesson teaching the paradox of Schrodinger’s Pussy. As well as being hilarious, Wet is also emotive and shocking in its no-holds-barred discussion of taboo subjects.
Though the performance is largely geared towards women, regardless of gender, you’re sure to giggle, cry and applaud your way to bodily autonomy, safe in the hands of the Hairy Godmothers from Oz.
