The Monocle 2023 Artwork MASTER

Welcome to The Monocle, where nothing is impossible!

This highly virtuosic contemporary dance performance featuring the voluptuous jazz chanteuse Imogen Banks presents the untold story of Le Monocle, a secretly notorious lesbian cabaret in 1930's Paris.

Inside The Monocle the air is thick, warm and wavy with secrets and sensuality. Women laugh loudly, drink the night away and abandon themselves into smooth and passionate dances.

Just for one night, be our guest at The Monocle and experience the joy of what it feels like to be in a truly safe space.

Please note: this show uses haze and flashing lights.
