For three nights only during Midsumma Festival, Willing presents a theatrical telling of his yet to be released sophomore EP. An exploration of life in flux, of meltdown and renewal, chronicling the end of a great love. A deep love. The resulting highs and reckless lows. The lacerations and blood clots: souvenirs of Sicilian summers, kick-ons in maternity suites, pizza in bed watching Netflix alone.

Small Cruelties is queer pop at its most ambitious, subversive and raw. As though Frank Ocean wrote an album for Amy Winehouse, turned on the early naughties house and set it in the key of Rufus Wainwright. In short, this is a break up album, presented in full technicolour as a piece of abstracted performance art. Say goodbye to your dream boy. Say hello to Willing.
