Hackney Showroom & Travis Alabanza present
- 14 November 2018 - 17 November 2018
- The Studio
Performance artist Travis Alabanza presents BURGERZ, an exploration of the act of survival, the way a body can dodge objects, and how a person is received, examined and dissected in public.
Hurled Words. Thrown Objects. Dodged Burgers.
‘I was called faggot 60 times in public 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 landed in the national papers after being thrown out of a Top Shop Manchester changing room.'
BURGERZ asks the questions: What does the trans body do in order to survive? And how can one become a protector, rather than a bystander?
Carving out a place for themselves as one of the most prominent trans voices in the UK, Alabanza presents a piece that is both timely and true to their style: both unsettling and powerful.
A Hackney Showroom production in association with Ovalhouse, Royal Exchange Theatre and Marlborough Theatre. BURGERZ is also part of the And What? Queer. Arts. Festival.
