Tuesday 24th October 7:30pm
Jim Burrows and Frances Kay
present a double bill of new and furious performance
FK vs. KT and STRANGE LOOP

In FK vs. KT Frances Kay explores the sense of self, and the ways through which creative identity can be torn apart by pride and political opinion.

Over 40 minutes, this neo-drag autobiographical work explores how personalities can be skewed by patriotism, affected by loyalty and destroyed by fanaticism. Brexit (n.): an issue that is tearing us apart (literally). An exploration of what could be lost, and what could be gained.

STRANGE LOOP is a psychoanalyst’s wet-dream. It’s a postmodern p**s-take. It’s a closed circuit, baby.

We find ourselves lost in a dark, mythopoetic labyrinth; a twisted warren of pop-culture reference; a kaleidoscopic cavern of queerness and the uncanny. This interdisciplinary work loops ceaselessly through spoken word, lip-sync, 80’s synthwave, Expressionist horror, and other… Stranger Things.

Join Burrows and Kay for an evening of experimental new performances bound together in a queering of the contemporary moment. Supported by R&D at Edge Hill University and The University of Huddersfield.

Performances contain graphic content and nudity.
