Navigating  who  we  are  has  never  been  tougher,  access  is  blocked  with  the promise of  beauty  and  perfection.   The  personal  highway  to  our  soul  is  in  multi-lane gridlock,  diversions  from  the  self  at  every  exit.  

Australia’s  most  celebrated  underground  performance  artist  &  the  worlds  original  sex clown  Glitta  Supernova   guides  you  on  an  intimate  fleshy  foray  through  the parallel universes  of  ’90’s  club  culture  &  performative  theatre.    

Psychedelic,  Satirical,  Personal  &  Political  storytelling  that’s  packed  to  the  rafters with  puns,  punches  &   possibilities.  BODY  MAP  is  deep  dive  across  the  consumer bordered  planet  and  into  our  inner  being,  highlighting   our  capacity  to  transform despite  the  odds.    

Think  The  Mighty  Boosh  crossed  with  Black  Mirror.   The  Body  Map  bordello  bus pulls  itself  into  Melbourne’s  The  Butterfly  Club  this  March.  Tap  into  the  tail  end  of  the  massive  12  month  sell  out  tour  across  Australia  and  New  Zealand  which  has amassed  a  total  6  nominations   and  3  awards  including  Top  Gong  winner  “Best  in Fringe  2017”  award,  “Best  Cabaret  2017”  &  “Most   Outstanding  Fringe  Performer”.    

As  one  of  Australia’s  key  underground  culture  makers  &  creator  of  Australia’s  1st Burlesque  Club  “Gurlesque”   Glitta’s  working  class  Dutch  roots  &  a  consistent  anti-­‐establishment  message  set  the  tone  for  a  show  that’s   wanting  to  reach  in  and shake  your  soul  memory  up.      

This  is  what  happens  when  an  original  80’s  punk  makes  it  through  the  vortex  into 2018  -­‐  more  Anarchy,  Bingles   and  Chaos  than  you  could  poke  a  selfie  stick  at.
