Episode 1: The Gloop show
THE GLOOP SHOW
Trans-aggressive tarot card reader and tattooist, Oozing Gloop, is the world’s premier post-drag autistic assemblage that haunts Norfolk, Berlin and London.
Oozing takes you on a psychomagical trip from the universal AEIOU to the particular 3 3 3 2 2 (and back again.) 3 3 3 2 2 is the incessant personal rhythm Gloop’s been obsessed with for 13 years – a particular behaviour to autism known as a Stim.
On route we ramble through a dreamscape of handmade patchwork veils, gigantic vowels, masks, wigs and lashes.
As we spiral through the subconscious our guiding green vagabond wielding a 7ft mascara wand assures that squares make squares, triangles make triangles and doing things… does stuff.
To the accompaniment of Bonnie Tyler and Bette Davis THE GLOOP SHOW re-stitches the fabric of our reality and charts sublime new political territories. This is your survival guide to the 21st century!

“Extraordinary...incredible...I can’t stop talking to everyone about it!!”
“Aesthetics of chaos... in this incredibly intricate web of logic. It was almost trancelike!!”
