“We Are a Hearty Sisterhood”
We must bury our knowledge until the apocalypse passes.
Bearing wings made of sharp knives and shooting fireballs into the air, Emma tackles the current media fascination with trans lives and interrogates the controversial biotechnology of HRT.
In part, a response to her experiences with trans people in Brazil, Sulawesi and Turtle Island – Hearty is about how we can be prepared for the challenges of modern trans existence, whilst listening to our ancestors and preparing the way for those who will come after us.
Hearty is the fifth and final solo show in the None of Us is Yet a Robot project – a series of performances that have been a response to her gender transition and the politics surrounding trans identity over the past seven years.
This event is part of Queer Contact. Each February, as part of LGBT History Month, Queer Contact’s programming converges in a festival of events – Queer Contact Festival – featuring the best performance, music, spoken word, dance, theatre and visual art with local young people and performers interacting with the best UK and international talent.
