The Major Arcana is a shared dialogue amongst the collaborators about queerness, inclusion and playfulness in a political climate of adversity, austerity and commercialism. The Major Arcana’s pieces explore the tarot cards’ themes; anxiety, ecology, sexuality, gender, freedom, love.
The host performers, Tom Marshman, and special guest Timberlina (on the 11th Dec) will select one audience member for a tarot reading of their past, present and future cards. Their future card is a bespoke, performed cabaret experience, creating a vivid spectacle for the wider audience.
The Major Arcana lasts for an hour and a half, with readings working in 10 minute cycles, with performances from Corali Dance Company, Impermanence and host performers. The aesthetic of this “game show” varies greatly from raggle-taggle charm to a refined visual spectacle.
