Oberon White is a queer, Welsh performance artist, musician and cabaret performer. A feral child of different arts practices they metamorphose between the roles of shaman, drag artist, clown, as well as classical and experimental musician. They perform in venues and festivals for live art, queer cabaret and nightlife, experimental theatre and music in the UK and abroad. Their work evokes echoes from the worlds of ancient history, esoteric practices, nature and queer culture amongst a messy web of other sources.
Oberon White is a graduate of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and a current Roundhouse Resident Artist.
The Roarer, The Liberator, The God Who Comes, just some of the epithets of one of humanity’s most potent archetypes, Dionysos. Join modern-day, queer shaman Oberon White on a journey into the mysteries of history’s suppressed queer deity. White presents a contemporary ritual to the ancient world’s champion of marginality in all its forms. Dionysos is the ultimate liminal god, transcending borders between nations, genders, even life and death. Through a language of experimental electronic music, virtuosic vocals and original text, audiences are participants in a communal experience. Above all, winegod is an invitation to engage with ecstasy, epiphany and liberation.
