Performances for the Curious at Wales Millennium Centre

A season of compelling and critically-acclaimed new work from the very best in contemporary theatre and performance. Featuring comedy, cabaret, music and scratch nights from artists in Wales and beyond. Inspired by what makes us different, challenging perceptions and celebrating individuality.

Wales Millennium Centre’s new Performances for the Curious season is inspired by what makes us different – challenging perceptions and celebrating individuality. There are over 25 performances to discover, from October 24th, so one thing’s for sure, audiences won’t be stuck for choice!

The Curious performance spaces include the Weston Studio where you can get immersed in new work, and ffresh – an informal and lively space which is perfect for catch-ups, cocktails, cabaret and comedy. Productions include a brand new bilingual show, Tuck, set in Cardiff’s drag scene; cult musical The Last Five Years; Bullish, which explores trans-masculine gender and identity; bop, blues and boogaloo from London band Fraser and the Alibis; Welsh drag act Connie Orff; and the sensational Icons by Le Gateau Chocolat.

As well as the performances on stage, the Centre also has a brand new food and drink menu in ffresh; meaning you can grab a bite to eat before the show or catch up with friends for a 2-for-1 cocktail at the end of the night.

Must-see family theatre

Duckie is a reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling with a message of tolerance and self acceptance at its core. It’s on at the Weston Studio at Wales Millennium Centre , 20th-31st December.

Family-friendly glamour and glitz takes centre stage as critically acclaimed cabaret star Le Gateau Chocolat breaks out of his shell in his first work for children, a classic tale of identity and belonging.

Set in an animal circus, we join him on an adventure of self-discovery, asking questions of the ‘happy ever after’ in a celebration of difference. Walking a little differently? Sounding a bit strange? Watch Duckie triumph by realising these are his strengths.
