Triple Threat at Sydney Festival
Sydney Festival 2020 | Cabaret & Dance
About Triple Threat
A taboo-busting, ‘trashstep-dubpunk’ retelling of the New Testament by provocateur Lucy McCormick, directed by Ursula Martinez (Wild Bore, Sydney Festival 2018).
The multi-talented McCormick and her Girl Squad tackle issues of power, feminism, queer identity and modern-day morality through the holy trinity of performance art, dance routines and power ballads. A smash hit at the Edinburgh Fringe, Triple Threat delivers sacrilegious satire with sharp-eyed absurdism and glorious obscenity.
Casting herself in all the main roles, McCormick’s re-enactment of the life of Jesus – smeared in sweat, saliva and Nutella – won her the Dublin Fringe Best Performer Award (2017) and saw her nominated for an Off-West End Award.
