“These are our bodies. What do you see?” Two transgender performers say f**k you to the binary, and invite you to their radically queer dance party! Set in nightclubs, Sound Cistem is an exuberant dance show about the cisgender gaze on the transgender body. Through riotous, glittering disco, shame is rejected and a self-love manifesto made. Unafraid to punch hard, Sound Cistem asks you to see the beauty in these bodies: and your own too.
‘I used to be interested in clothes, clubs, buying records. And men. Now my life…what life?’ Responding to Bren Gosling’s ‘Moment of Grace’ two performers explore what it was to be gay in the 80s when the UK was full of fear and ignorance. An intimate duet moving through themes of paranoia, intimacy and oppression. The work also gives thanks to those who made it possible to say “HIV is no longer a death sentence.”
