Sydney performer Betty Grumble describes herself as "surreal showgurl, obscene beauty queen and sex clown". Her award-winning debut show is an extraordinary, subversive show in which she puts her body on the line to spread an ecosexual gospel: the importance of having a loving, consensual relationship, of mutual respect and pleasure, with your planet. Her method? A cocktail of cabaret, burlesque and drag that's thoroughly queer, funny, sexy – sometimes shocking, occasionally visceral. It's a pump-your-fist-in-the-air fusion of environmental activism and sex positivity.
