AdvertisementScarabeus Aerial Theatre has commissioned three brand-new works from young trans and queer artists and invited them to perform the works-in-progress at Jacksons Lane.
Tough Boys Dance Collective, a queer-led dance theatre company who make contemporary, multidisciplinary work, have created DJ as Witness, exploring the dancers’ perspective on the multifaceted experiences within queer clubs; from consensual offloading to sexual expression, and the cathartic release of moving together.
Recent National Centre for Circus Arts graduate Izzy Bloomer has created Breaking Point, an exploration of emotional fragility combining aerial and movement work with theatre and spoken word.
Multidisciplinary artist Jetsun and spoken word, graffiti and movement artist Cash’s piece Soft Unfold portrays the emotive journey of two BPOC queer individuals navigating trans brotherhood through dialogic movement. Drawing on their experiences of homelessness, undiagnosed neurodivergence and racialisation, this piece examines the complexities of queer friendship within the confines of marginalisation in London.
The evening is completed by a screening of Emerging, Scarabeus Aerial Theatre’s highly personal performance which centres on the relationship between a trans son, who has questioned his gender identity for as long as he can remember, and his mother.
Post-show talk The works-in-progress and the screening are followed by a post show talk with the artists. Hosted by producer Flora Herberich.
