So many things. What to do with them all? How to get inside? Where to find my forbidden desire?
Nando Messias invites you into their Narnian closet, a trans archive of exquisite ephemera, poignant stories and bodily wonders. Their TransMission is an intimate dance of self-confrontation, exhumation, immolation, lovingly bequeathing and fabulo-cannibalising, all from the inside of Sissy TV.
In an endlessly layered solo performance, Nando Messias discloses an extraordinary personal archive: a reliquary of sumptuous costumes, imperious fabulosity, unsterilised physicality and of course the trademark, legendary poignancy.
This wild act of fabulo-psycho-archaeology tears at the seams of inexorable time.
The moment is now.
The archive is urgent.
For the stuff that you’d rather file away out of sight will rise up from below, catch you unaware and devour you whole.
