The End of the World. A lesbian Spider cult. The President's mutant daughter. Mad science. And one bloody, perverse story of revenge.
The Slaughterhouse Sweethearts are a horror, neo-burlesque troupe created in 2010 because a couple of girls thought blood, boobs, and rock music were pretty awesome. Today, the Sweethearts are most noted for their original and bizarre routines, their dedication to challenging choreography and the unique storytelling they bring to each number they perform. Oh, also their dark, absolutely perverse sense of humor.
And that's exactly what Revenge of the Robot Battle Nuns is.
In their first "all story" show, troupe leader Femme Bones has written, choreographed, and stitched together, as she puts it: "An epic, b-horror, sci-fi, apocalyptic adventure from the brain of a burlesque dancer. I've been working on this one for about a year now. And man, it's as messed up as it is beautiful. This show has it all, aerialists, drag, splatter (wear a white T-shirt if you want a little flavor saver), comedy, violence, and, of course, tassels. If I wasn't in it, you bet your ass I'd be there."
So what does happen when two people who hate each other the most end up stuck together in the end of the world? What is the sexy Scout's dark secret? What do you see if you lick a nuclear frog woman? Where did the chaos start? What kind of welcome do you receive from a Lesbian Spider Cult? And WHO are the Robot Battle Nuns?!? All will be revealed at on September 30 at Club Oberon in Cambridge, MA.
But bringing Armageddon to Cambridge doesn't come cheap. The funds raised by this project will help cover a fraction of the costs of the production, including renting rehearsal space, constructing some of the most outrageous costumes, pasties, masks and props you've ever seen, paying the tech crew (lighting, sound, etc.) and, of course, glitter, lots and lots of glitter. This is the largest production The Slaughterhouse Sweethearts have ever put on and they couldn't do it without you!!!!!! Donate. Donate, and help welcome the world's sexiest Armageddon.
