Alp Haydar's Double Lubrication
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Alp Haydar's 'one-man pantomimes' are unique fusions of green-screen CGI animation, puppyish audience rapport, outrageously exuberant sexuality and affecting emotional narrative, setting explorations of gay Muslim identity against a backdrop of disaster-movie set-ups, pervy robots and the ruins of Atlantis. Think modern vs conservative, pride vs shame, Shirley Bassey vs Allah… Those who haven't yet caught up with Haydar's cycle of video-interactive fantasy-adventure stories – in which he plays all the roles, including himself, his monstrous mother and his smouldering Islamist boyfriend – now have a chance to catch up with this double bill of his last two shows, 'Alp Haydar's Flight 666 to Bermuda' and 'Alp Haydar's Erotic Adventures in Atlantis'. A bargain at twice the price.
