Sequin-clad satirical weirdos Bourgeois & Maurice are alien siblings from another planet that you’ve probably never heard of because it’s very new and cool and obscure. They write songs that stick in your head like bloodstains in your nice new carpet. Their world is a sexy, stomping, politically-charged echo chamber. A highly theatrical kaleidoscope of current affairs, moral confusion and slippery social commentary.
Recognised as one of the leading acts in London’s alternative performance scene, they gave their first performance in 2007 and have gone on to tour the world - collecting fans from Belgrade to New York. They have performed at the Royal Opera House, Southbank Centre and Sadler’s Wells and regularly appear at Soho Theatre in London.
As well as receiving nice reviews from the press, and some awards from awards people, they once received a letter of complaint for spilling fake blood on a lady’s capri pants. They, like the victim of the fake blood incident, recognise that life can be surprising and sometimes inconvenient - and this is what their work reflects.
