        Created alongside David Harris and Dusty Limits from the boom Boom Club and La Reve, The Black Cat is Vicky’s new creative project in London. Designed as a complete  immersion into the world of the show and narrative based rather than just a selection of unrelated acts, she also provides unique costuming for the exclusive group numbers and front-of-house styling.

        Drawing on characters from classical mythology, the denizens of “The Black Cat Cabaret” enmesh you in the threads of their stories as they draw you through your subconscious and into the Underworld with Orpheus as he hunts for his beloved. But will she follow him back?

    “The co-creators of Boom Boom Club and La Rêve have brought together their most exceptional band of performers yet, transforming the Titanic Ballroom of Café de Paris into a new bohemia.


    Dreamed up by long-term collaborators Vicky Butterfly, Dusty Limits and David Harris, The Black Cat Cabaret draws inspiration from the absinthe-soaked heyday of Montmartre’s dark and daring cabaret underworld. Expect a carnival of street singers and mad musicians, acrobats, dancers and illusionists, delirious comics and exotic artistes, as well as a contemporary take on belle epoque Chinese shadow plays.


    The Black Cat Cabaret is a place to encounter modern performance in all its wondrous forms – from the sacred to the profane, the lyrical to the louche – with walkabout entertainment, fine dining and a spectacular and provocative stage show amidst the grandeur of London’s most historic variety venue. It’s where London’s revellers come to rub shoulders and purr, as the elusive eponymous feline watches from the shadows…”
