Why, Gahd, WHY?! : Dunedin Fringe Festival

Why, Gahd, WHY?!


House of Gahd with C ARTS

See tickets below


As the world falls into chaos, humanity is looking for its path. How will humanity navigate this treacherous terrain of uncertainty? Drag, of course! How better to understand the absurdity of it all? Why, Gahd? WHY?? is a journey into the chaos and a guiding light. Two living Gahds have blessed the mortals with their presence and will share their knowledge of the universe through the ancient arts of divination and drag … which might just be tainted with pop culture references, witty banter, and a flair for the dramatic.

First presented and recorded at the the 2021 OFFTA Festival in Montréal, Québec, Canada.

Performed mostly in English, with a little French with English subtitles.

House of Gahd is born from the creatives behind House of Laureen.* Uma Gahd and Selma Gahd focus their energies on new creations and productions exploring drag, politics, and humanity as a lived experience. Drag is more than glitz and glamour, it is DIVINE!
