Performed by drag queen Rhys’s Pieces, non-binary vocalist Ella Taylor, and electronic musician Benjamin Tassie, After Violence will explore gender, masculinity and male violence from a uniquely queer perspective, celebrating diverse identities though radical, cross-genre performance. Text and direction will be by Finn Beames of Oedipa.
Using the music of baroque composer John Dowland as a framework, After Violence will incorporate elements of dance, cabaret, drag, electronic-pop and baroque music to explore plural perspectives on maleness and masculinity. Performed in the beautiful Tudor setting of the National Trust’s Sutton House, After Violence will be a unique musical experience.
The performance will last approximately 60 minutes, with a bar until late.
