The Full Moon Cabaret goes online for The Egg Moon!

Coco Ono for Full Moon Cabaret Egg Moon April 9 2020 by Suzanne ForbesSuch a wonderful show!

This show always brings magic surprises. I have always been pleasantly shocked by at least one moment in every Full Moon Cabaret show, and this online celebration did not disappoint. Above, amazing Coco Ono‘s performance came all the way from California.

Fifi Fantome for Full Moon Cabaret Egg Moon April 9 2020 by Suzanne ForbesFifi Fantôme of the Velvet Creepers makes more inventive use of her immediate environment than you can possibly imagine.

You can check out her Patreon for performance tips, art and treats! She wears a spectacular outfit of latex from Berlin local designer Lupae Latex.

Dunja von K for Full Moon Cabaret Egg Moon April 9 2020 by Suzanne ForbesDelighted to see fave muse and Fifi’s fellow Creeper Dunja von K!

She performed a Weimar inspired Quarantroplis, rich with light and shadow. Another performer making such ingenious use of what’s available to them at home.

You can get moving with her here. Did you know she holds Guinness World Records for hooping?

There were several other wonderful acts, including the beautiful Mlle Vicky Butterfly from the UK, the act that shocked me (too shocking to reveal here!) and a finale of my very favorite Full Moon Cabaret act EVER, which I will not reveal because you gotta see it. Check out the Full Moon feed and get on the mailing list for a chance to view the show yourself and donate to support the performers!

Seeing these marvelous performers do so much with what’s at hand was exhilarating.

I am so grateful to my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support lets me keep documenting queer performers while I work safely at home.
