Burgerz

Date: Wednesday, Nov 20 - Saturday, Nov 23
Venue: Bristol Old Vic: Weston Studio

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 Travis’ 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.

Nov 20-23, 8pm, from £15. Ages 14+.
