Homotopia Festival 2018
Hackney Showroom presents BURGERZ by Travis Alabanza.
Hurled Words. Thrown Objects. Dodged Burgers.
What does the trans body do in order to survive? And how can one become a protector, rather than a bystander?
I was called faggot 60 times last year. 15 different men tried to follow me home. A woman told her child not to sit next to me on the tube. And I hit the headlines after being thrown out of a changing room.
Carving out a place for themselves as one of the UK’s prominent trans voices, Alabanza presents a piece that is timely, unsettling and powerful, exploring the way a body can dodge objects and how trans people are dissected in public.
Performed by Travis Alabanza. Directed by Sam Curtis Lindsay. In association with Ovalhouse, Royal Exchange Theatre & Marlborough Theatre.
