Presented by LGBTQ Arts Review


This year The LGBTQ Arts Review are seeking to platform the lesser heard LGBTQ+ voices: trans, lesbian, bisexual, non-binary and intersectional LGBTQ+ voices. Here they curate an evening of engaging, political and thought-provoking performance for you directly from the Raising Our Voices project.

For this festival they will bring an exciting new piece of devised work to the CPT, alongside an evening of four shorter pieces all developed through the Raising Our Voices Project. As well as performance, expect vibrant installation and a chance to engage.

Wednesday 27th September

They / Them by Teddy Lamb and Molly Beth White

I have never in my life yelled at a girl like this. When my mother yells like this it’s because she loves me. I was rooting for you; we were all rooting for you!
When friends die and pronouns change, what’s left of the memories you don’t quite fit into anymore? And what about the memories you’re ashamed of? if you live your life on stage, you end up performing everything, from gender to friendship and beyond. Taking inspiration from Tennesse Williams and Tyra Banks, They/Them explores the impact of performance in the aftermath of a tragedy.

Hair By The Killjoys

Formed in 2017, The Killjoys are two cultural instigators based in London. Their mission is to start a riot, bringing together a diverse range of artists to help them along the way. HAIR. is a verbatim piece exploring the difficult relationship between our hair and our identities. We’re investigating what hair means to women, to queer women, to women of colour, to disabled women, to trans women, to working class women, to old women, to young women.

More than a Martyr By Miiko Toiviainen
Partly autobiographical, partly sung, all honest. More Than A Martyr combines musical theatre songs with trans narratives, while tackling the fact that in commercial musical theatre, no positive trans representations exist. Why aren’t our stories being told?

Pitch and Cologne By Nemo Martin, With Annabelle Sami, Brian Law, Frey Hawking and Darrel Bailey
George has been masquerading as his brother John – the secret kept safe by Mary – while John has been at war under Captain Benjamin – who has fallen in love… Pitch & Cologne is a comedy-of-errors period drama based on the real lives of queer people of colour in 19th century high society.
