Inspired by old movies, Sigi Moonlight takes on a series of iconic, traditionally masculine personas in their shows: from Kung Fu master, to dangerous criminal and even Oscar statuette. Rife with pop culture references and allusions to today’s socio-political issues, Sigi’s performances play around with ideas of toxic masculinity. Don’t expect your run-of-the-mill cabaret; Sigi’s shows cause so much furore that he was once banned from performing on stage in Canada.
