‘LILIT’ is a wickedly funny, razor-sharp, joyous queer cabaret in the voice of Lilith, an ancient Jewish demon.

Lilith is described in the Tanakh as a dweller in ‘waste spaces’. Created not from a rib, but from the same dust as Adam, Lilith refused to be subservient to him and instead chose exile, pain and freedom as a nocturnal demonic spirit. Lilith reclaims the incantations designed to keep them out. In so doing, they empower ‘othered’ entities (be they sheydim, demons, Jewish, queer or disabled bodies). Through new and ancient ritual practices for healing the unhealable Lilith engages with the powerful, earthy magic of the everyday, as performed by their ancestors. While occasionally moonlighting as a nightclub singer and disembowelling the odd Home Secretary.

Dancing in the ruined temple. Performing self-surgery in their scab-red Nissan Micra. Crouching at the edges of our vision, bearing witness.
