Trans Cabaret Artist Miss Cairo Debuts At Fringe Festival With ‘Breasts Become Her’

Midnight Snack PR

Whilst everyone was growing potted plants and learning a new language in lockdown, Miss Cairo sat on her ass and grew a new set of tits. Miss Cairo puts her breast foot forward to create her first ever solo show ‘Breasts Become Her’ running from 15th – 19th October at The Meeting Room, Trades Hall and 20th – 21st October at Geelong Arts Centre as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival. Inspired by the 1992 film ‘Death Becomes Her’ starring Merryl Streep and Goldie Horn, the debut show explores Miss Cairo’s relationship to her femininity since transitioning from a UK drag superstar to an Aussie cabaret trans icon. Singing a mixture of original songs and some classic belters, Miss Cairo asks ‘When do I become a Woman?’

Confident, self assured and for-the-lols delirious, the show starts with the opening song ‘I See Me’ from ‘Death Becomes Her’. Moving on, topics covered include trans- womanhood, censorship, pop culture, equal pay, allyship and consent – but don’t worry she’ll be doing it all with at least one breast hanging out so you’ll definitely get something out of it, if not a great schooling! Also on the table for discussion is the upcoming International Equal Pay Day on September 18th. Currently Australia’s gender pay gap sits at 14.1%, with the figure widening for women of colour, trans women and trans women of colour. However, with a conveniently attached Square card reader you can easily show Miss Cairo your tips – reparations never looked so good!

If you like self aware iconic 80’s films with leading ladies, trans rights and reparations you will love the show and come away questioning your own relationship to who you are. Will her first ever solo show go tits up? Let’s just hope this show’s not a one-tit wonder…
