MOIRA FINUCANE’S THE RAPTURE
MOIRA FINUCANE LIVE AT LITERATURHAUS
THE RAPTURE: ART VS EXTINCTION
PARTY AT THE EDGE OF THE ABYSS
She is known “La Diosa” The Gothic Glamazon. Australia calls her a ‘National Treasure’, Brazil calls her ‘The Devil in a Bottle’. Moira Finucane: live artist, environmental scientist, magic realist and international cabaret queen presents her intimate art event The Rapture: Art vs Extinction. The Rapture is a fever dream of gothic-erotic apocalypse, demons and angels, beasts and humans, wild visions, soul-searing music, and total art. Hope, extinction, treasuring, beauty, despair and dancing at the end of times.
Commissioned by Mesto Zensk City of Women Festival (Slovenia) and Climakaze Festival (Miami), winner of the Climakaze Award 2017 for Outstanding work on Climate Change, and chosen for the Australian exhibit at Prague Quadrennial 2019.
The Rapture is created by Australia’s multi awarded live artist, director & creator, credited with redefining cabaret for a new generation. It is inspired by Finucane’s life as an environmental scientist and human rights workers, her years in underground clubs and global cabarets; her travels from Antarctica to the red deserts of Australia, her fascination with fairy tales and fables, with the human spirit and with art as its expressed power, and with the Anthropocene, the ‘sixth extinction’.
