The Office Party (For Those Without an Office) is an immersive cabaret club night. Expect high energy anarchic shredding, sadomasochistic appraisals and off-planet away-day vibes – everyone is an employee, so suit up, tie down and get ready to party into the next financial year. Club Kids meets The Office in this trading floor of late-night queer trash mayhem. Visit the water cooler for gossip, stationary cupboards for illicit rendezvous, scan privates into the photocopier all while you get down to guillotine-sharp beats and acts from the best of London and Berlin’s drag/cabaret/comedy underworld.
'Legendary theatrical troublemakers' Bait have been making anarchic, playful physical performance since 2017. Bait (Michelle Madsen and Lizzy Shakespeare) create playful subversive work, fusing movement, live art and clowning to create intimate performance, club nights, queer cabaret acts and full theatrical productions (Cronivision 2021, Kill the Princess 2019) - both live and online. Bait's Office Party has become a mainstay on the queer cabaret circuit in London - they are resident artists at VFD in Dalston, bringing acts such as Seyonce, Marnie Scarlett and Tahita Bulmer to a growing audience of devoted 'company employees'.

Praise for Cronivision
‘It’s utterly mad, but so is everything else at the moment.’
'Lockdown-busting, feel-good, weirdly intelligent- every moment is unexpected, and it is a mistake to force what is happening into any preformed assumption about what theatre is'
