WINNER TOTAL THEATRE AWARDS 2019
SHORTLISTED FOR THE CAROL TAMBOR BEST OF EDINBURGH AWARD
By Travis Alabanza
Directed by Sam Lindsay Curtis
Produced by Hackney Showroom London
Hurled words. Thrown objects. Dodged Burgers.
After someone threw a burger at them and shouted a transphobic slur, performance artist Travis Alabanza became obsessed with burgers.
How they’re made, how they feel, and smell. How they travel through the air. How the mayonnaise feels on your skin.
This show is the climax of their obsession – exploring how trans bodies survive and how, by them reclaiming an act of violence, we can address our own complicity.
Carving out a place for themselves as one of the UK’s prominent trans voices, Alabanza presents a performance that is timely, unsettling and powerful.
Original production supported by Ovalhouse, Marlborough Theatre, Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery Fund & Bishopsgate Institute.
Reviews… Don’t just take our word for it…
***** “Alabanza takes an act of violence and transforms it into something both beautiful and brutal”
**** “Humane and heart-rending… Alabanza is sassy and witty, feeding off the audience like a seasoned cabaret star”
Transgender Day of Remembrance
On 20th November, we remember and honour transgender people around the world whose lives have been lost to anti-transgender violence.
