Malik Nashad Sharpe presented parts of He's Dead with Gareth Chambers at Block Universe as part of a special programme in Lukenwalde, Germany. Here's a video captured at the festival.
BINGE, a new performance installation curated by Brian Lobel, creates the space to slow down, disconnect from the noise of everyday life, reconnect with the comfort of a duvet and a listening ear. BINGE is a collection of one-to-one and intimate drop-in performances based around your favourite box sets, and exists somewhere between radical self-care and playful self-indulgence. Warmly nostalgic, BINGE collapses the distinction between the high-brow, the low-brow, and the freshly-plucked brow.
BINGE is free, drop-in and open to all.

Live, direct and set to smash, rather than just break the mould, We Dig sees Emma and guests taking complete control as they dig deep into the historic Ovalhouse building. We Dig focuses on trans artists, communicating elements of their global situation, particularly targeting the needs of women and girls. A collaborative devised process with other trans artists, including Travis Alabanza (whose recent 5 star show Burgerz sold out across its London and Edinburgh run), One From the Vaults host Morgan M Page and Indonesian celebrity and performance artist Tamarra.
We Dig will be performed by a changing company of trans femmes, with a surprise guest performer each night.
Running from Saturday 5th - Saturday 19th October, 7.30pm, with BSL interpreted performances on Thursday 10th and 17th.
