"Extraordinary" - Australian Arts Review
Told through their signature style of song and prose poetry, gentlefemme cabaret queen Christopher Fieldus divulges the detail of an incendiary crisis of personality. Featuring music by the likes of Celine Dion, Róisín Murphy and The Killers, this queer, contemporary Narcissean epic promises to dazzle as deeply as it devastates.
Their voice "a glorious fusion of Kate Bush and James Blake" (Aussie Theatre), and with musical arrangements by Matt Hadgraft, in Devastating Beauty we see this unique vocal talent emerge with confidence, as we follow along their journey to discovering the truest expression of themselves.
Having previously charmed audiences as Ms CeCe Rockefeller, writer, drag artist and dramaturg Christopher Fieldus has written three works of tragically romantic melodrama, presented variously at Melbourne Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, Midsumma, and Sydney Mardi Gras.
Her third piece, Somebody's Somebody, earned a place in Playwriting Australia's Post-Production program, which paired them with mentor Sarah Ward.
"Sumptuous ... [their] soaring voice will surely melt your heart"
"A beautiful expression of longing and self-discovery ... humorous, personable, heartbreaking, and joyous to watch"
