Presented by Vijay Patel
‘This is not a show about Britney. This is a show about my family’s corner shop. Wait, maybe this is a show about Britney and not my family’s corner shop. I want to work like Britney, lip sync like Britney and be an artist. I’m a shopkeeper. Can I be a lip sync Britney artist and a shopkeeper? Maybe I’m neither? I’m still finding the balance..‘
Pull the Trigger is a show exploring Indian corner shop culture as a site to explore personal identity (queer discovery), family conflicts surrounded by the legacy + history of shop-keeping values from Ugandan-Asian migrants.
The performance manifests in text, recorded sound, structured task based actions and cabaret. A show which borrows the aesthetics of traditional Indian corner shops to create this world.
“The sound of the radio: it battles in my head, in my body, in my history. The conflict continues: Pull the Trigger then you’ll see.”
“Vijay Patel is an engaging, exciting and charming performance artist. His work is funny, poignant, fearlessly personal, and current.” – Sh!t Theatre
