I'm so pleased to be working with the wonderful Nando Messias on his brand new work, Shoot the Sissy, this Autumn and beyond.
Gasp… Be amazed… Take aim… It’s a live target!
Nando Messias is back with a new work, Shoot the Sissy – his own disturbingly beautiful freak show, a queer menagerie of carnivalesque contortion and florid fantasy.
How many ways are there to shoot a Sissy? Confronting the everyday danger of death inherent in the queer condition, Messias pulls the audience into the firing line. In response to the shootings in Orlando, it is time to reflect on whether ‘queer lives matter’ too.
Following on from his national tour of acclaimed work The Sissy’s Progress, Messias invites you to witness secret insights into the murky depths of doubt, terror and dreams, bringing compulsive gazes closer to the bold fragility of his trademark body — a Sissy body.
Roll up, don’t be shy…. come Shoot the Sissy!
