About this show

Someone is killing the heterosexuals! As dozens of brutal slayings engulf the city in panic, a young gay man rises to fame in underground rap clubs.

WARNING: Adult content, extreme violence, and graphic heterophobia. A follow-up to Tenderpits, AnimalParts' 'avant-garde autobiography', Revenge of the Popinjay is an experimental rap-horror show in which Anthony struggles to cope with the loss of his sister while uncovering a frightening link between himself, his lover, and an illusive gay rap star/serial killer targeting heterosexuals.

Revenge of the Popinjay combines storytelling, stand-up, physical theatre, performance art, and original live rap music to create a one-of-a-kind theatrical event. Popinjay satirizes the clichés of homophobic culture and questions the capacity for evil in all of us.
