Courtney Act in FLUID

Dive into a cool refreshing ocean of fluid sexuality and gender with famed drag artist and cultural provocateur, Courtney Act, as she explores and pours her creative juices into her latest pop-cabaret: FLUID.

In a world just beginning to tear down the cultural dams of the past, we are all now being flooded with ever changing and flowing ideas of who we are, what we are, and what we might become.

UK & Europe! I am bringing my brand new pop-cabaret show FLUID to you for the very first time in 2021! Take the plunge with me into the rapids of our times and the reflective ponds of my own journey with FLUID, an evening of song, soul, sexuality, and perhaps a little saliva (for those who sit too close).

Pre-sale tickets are available Friday 26 June 2020 at 9am by signing up here.

Tickets go on general sale on Monday 29 June 2020 at 9am via this link.

Make sure you sign up so you don’t miss out on tickets!

Courtney Act in Under the Covers

Courtney has been under the covers with many, but not usually in front of a live audience. It’s time to get tucked in with all your favourite songs that have been covered in one way or another by all your favourite artists. Lay back and enjoy the caress of those romantic satin sheets as she strips some songs down and flips others on their back to show you just how gender fluid and genre fluid a great song can be! The sweet dreams Courtney spins will leave you pillow fighting and pillow biting.

“Coy, funny, sexy, classy, and thoroughly up-beat… Courtney is something fresh and inspiring.”
Manhattan Digest

“Her voice is astounding as she belts out ballads and leaves us in awe. She puts on a spectacular performance with a haunting tone to her voice that mesmerises the audience with every song she sings.”
Edinburgh Fringe Festival Mag

Kaleidoscope

CcusCkPUEAEP3sM[1]

My fourth video from the Kaleidoscope EP is the title track! And I am excited that it is also the official theme song of the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras 2016!
I loved coming up with the concept for this video. I wanted to tell a story about a different facet of the Kaleidoscope. I feel that gender and sexuality are fluid and so often we get stuck in the rigidity. Who knows when someone outside your usual target zone might come also and sweep you off your feet?
I read this quote from Lily Edelstein the other day it is seemed fitting “At the heart of Queer culture is revolution. The truest rebellion against a world built on categories, labels and binaries is coming from the emergence of identities that refuse to conform.”

Buy Kaleidoscope now on iTunes http://itunes.apple.com/album/id10881…
Including Acoustic version, Jodie Harsh Remix, Dirty Pop Remix & Tanner Derby Remix.
