“We Will Remember” This performance ritual is an exploration of the Marlborough’s queer history, a call to remember in the face of historic and current erasure of trans and queer histories.We exist. We are not new, we are not a trend. We have always been here. A walk into ways of remembering, space to mourn, respect and salute what has come before us – to feel backwards into the past. This is an on-going project to create site-sensitive performance actions that physically engage with moments of trans and queer resistance in Brighton.
Hester Chillingworth – Shorty
Shorty is a deconstructed drag-child of indeterminate gender, who frays at the edges and plays at the edges. Neither here nor there, neither this nor that, Shorty brings a spare change of clothes to most places, and usually has to use them. This show champions the not-quite, the slight and the awkward. It’s about the importance of grey areas. Shorty was the Chisenhale Dance Space and Marlborough Theatre 2016 Small Spaces commission.
