I Need to Cher are a collective of performers united by one thing – their love of Cher. Following their humble roots as a DIY club night in 2017, the circus, drag, comedy, dance and wrestling acts have stormed Latitude festival and had a successful run at Camden People’s Theatre.
How to Survive the Cherpocalypse has undergone some revisions since it was first submitted to the Space for a run this Spring. Space Director, Adam Hemming explains, ‘We loved the sound of this and how a message of hope in dark times can come from unexpected quarters. When the actual apocalypse (or close to it) hit us, we asked I Need to Cher to come up with an online version of the show for our Locked Down, Looking Up ACE-funded programme. They came up with The Cherona Edit which was a brilliant way of bringing the show to our online audiences.’
The version presented at the Space will feature one Cher on stage with numerous others broadcasting into the venue.
How does Cher remain so ageless and incredible? What wisdom can she bestow that will help us survive the next seven decades? The masterminds behind I Need to Cher, the world’s only feminist Cher-based cabaret collective are here to help you survive the Cherpocalypse.
