House of Kittens is a theatre company dedicated to an exploration into the world of erotic storytelling; passionate about embracing the essence of the sensual pageantries of bygone times and presenting them in a new authentic voice on the forefront of erotic performance art.
Performed by ladies of all genders, each show is designed to examine and interpret the endless expression of pleasure with the ultimate aim of engaging audiences in a new, liberated theatrical movement.
Taking inspiration from cult films, high fashion, musical icons, and underground art, founder and director Sophie Cohen creates a bold form of storytelling, combined with exceptional costumes, musical curation and collaborative choreography.
On Thursday 30th November 2017 House of Kittens will host Menagerie – an evening of conceptual, theatrical vignettes. Guests will converge in an opulent secret location where the audience will find themselves transported into a world of sensual theatre to experience a unique, immersive journey embracing the surreal, the dramatic and the erotic.
Performed across three floors of decedent surroundings with 20 individual performances, lasting from 3½ -16 minutes, Menagerie explores everything from romantic love stories, to full on kink. Audiences are invited to explore their surroundings as they move from room to room choosing the performances that most pique their curiosity and curating their own personal erotic theatrical evening.
Guests are very much encouraged to dress to the nines and embrace the Neo-Noir aesthetic so that they may fully experience the event and enhance their own immersive experience.
To help audiences choose the journey most suited to their own personal tastes, each of the 20 shows is graded either X, XX or XXX going from light and bright, to downright dark and diabolical. See next page for the delectable details of each show.
Oh – and best book that Friday off work – the after party, a whirlwind of drag and disco, kink and high-kicks goes on until late…
