About the Show

UTOPIAN (t's&c’s apply) is a surrealistic circus pop-culture experience about raves, hierarchy, and power. Joined by her two accomplices, Symoné takes the audience on an adventure filled with pole dancing, aerial, voguing, and high heel rollerskating in her psychedelic world asking the audience, ‘why do people abuse power roles?’. 

This show may or may not contain autobiographical references about cults.


“UTOPIAN (t&c’s apply) is a  joyous collision of candy rave, live art, burlesque and circus that floats above dull categorisation. With one finger to its lip, the show is knowingly and somehow innocently sensuous, psychedelic and tongue in its cheek smart. This is a show that has earned its place on big stages, filling blackboxes with light amongst the dark.” - Matt Burnham, Artistic Director of Cambridge Junction
