SCOTTISH PREMIERE | HACKNEY SHOWROOM
By Travis Alabanza
Hurled words. Thrown objects. Dodged Burgers.
After someone threw a burger at them and shouted a transphobic slur, performance artist Travis Alabanza became obsessed with burgers. How they are made, how they feel, and smell. How they travel through the air. How the mayonnaise feels on your skin.
This show is the climax of their obsession – exploring how trans bodies survive and how, by them reclaiming an act of violence, we can address our own complicity.
Carving out a place for themselves as one of the UK’s prominent trans voices, Travis presents a performance that is timely, unsettling and powerful.
