Down under the sea (or rather, above The Haggerston pub), Tony Hornecker of The Pale Blue Door has teamed up with that irrepresible sea witch A Man To Pet to present a bonkers dining and cabaret experience complete with authentic Greek cuisine cooked by A Man To Pet's very own mother Mama Pet! Seeing as they've extended the run of GenderPacific and opened up more dinner opportunities we caught up with Tony and Pet to find out more...
Where is Gender Pacific and how long will it be running for?
Tony: GenderPacific could be anywhere, any sea from the Red to the North to our dearest Caspian!
Our main port is located above a pub randomly, The Haggerston, once all are onboard we head off to the depths in our wonderful traveling machine!
A Man To Pet: Is start the trip from Kingsland road above Hagerstown pub!!! Weird ha but yes is happenning you can experience under water life in the heart of Dalston!!! Trips will go on till 12 of July. You better get your tickets now, limited seats left.
What’s the signature dish?
Tyrosalata... spicy creamy feta cheese melt with herbs.
Is it true that A Man To Pet’s mum is doing all the cooking?
AMTP: Oh yes is Very True we wanted to have a real home made Greek food and put all the family in business. Also mama Hornecker she made hats for the gender pacific that everyone can wear!!!
What other dishes does Mama Pet have up her sleeve for us to try?
AMTP: Mama Pet's dishes change daily and gaily, with Maria her right hand and Tony her left, she deftly conjures her kleftiko. Lachanodolmades, soutsoukakia, moussaka, keftedakia, and more... yum yum with genderless, slenderless decadence galore! Her dessert galaktoboureko is the best!!!

If you were a deep sea creature, which would you be and why?
AMTP: I would be Miss Jelly fish Octopussy or Mr Crab actual creatures that you can see at Gender Pacific sub marine.
What can we expect from a night out at Gender Pacific?
Bored by sitting watching our country, our world, our beloved Dalston overtaken by bankers and wankers from far and wide, saddened by constant newspaper headlines dripping the same fear mongering words to our sweet open ears, Ms Pet and Tony decided to take things into their own hands, developing an oasis deep beneath the seas, where sexuality is irrelevant, immigrants are people not numbers and politicians great blunders. The journey to this land is a chance to collectively reflect, to be dazzled by simple pleasures of bygone eras, where theatre is god and friends are our air. Tony's ship is hand built but sturdy and A Man To Pet's show, handmade but blurry, Mama Pet flown in, sturdy and blurry, with teary eyes of joy has she watches her son, gender specific as male transform into a sea creature, not gay for sure but to her eyes as beautiful as any lady, so pure…
Happy faces dive each Thursday To Sunday, the subterranean SubMarine delights with under sea sights, imagine the Titanic's delectable dining room, in a pocket of air still singing, still dancing as she sank to her doom..
Visit GenderPacific above The Haggerston Pub in Dalston before July 12th.
