Welcome to the Strange Fruit Cabaret, where all the darkest, most decadent excesses and pleasures of the world, and your own imagination, are revealed to you. Are you ready to be entertained?

Strange Fruit is a tribute to Sarah Baartman and her daughters. Get ready to be dazzled by homages to artists such as Billie Holiday, Lucille Bogan, Josephine Baker, Betty Davis and Grace Jones – sexy pioneers of politics and of pleasure who broke boundaries with their tantalising talents. It is a romp through the last century, celebrating the Black women who broke barriers, challenging the ways society expected them to be seen and heard.
This is a celebration of the boldest, bravest, ‘badass black diamond queens who dared to do things their way.

Strange Fruit Cabaret

Strange Fruit was developed as a response to the complicated relationship that exists between Black female performers, the public - and our bodies. With experience traversing music, burlesque and the sex industries, the performers themselves have a unique experience of the intricate problems that lie on the road from struggle to success, and particularly within the context of political, creative and sexual liberation.
