Drew Taylor: 44 Stories

Wed 2 - Sat 5 Jul 2014 | Wed, Thurs, Sat 9 - 10.15pm (Fri 8.30 - 9.45pm) | £12/10

Seventy countries are competing in the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Forty-four of these countries declare homosexuality as illegal… in some places punishable by death. We want you to know more about these places and the people that were born there.
Presented by Mr Livingston Knows – the newest Drag King on the block – and a cast of misfits, vogue walkers and tranny-chasing contorted malcontents, we present a kaleidoscopic journey around the globe. Drawing from 90s New York ballroom culture, queer hip-hop dance styles, poetry slams and cabaret – 44 Stories is a celebration of life lost and dreams of a brighter future for life now.

44 Stories is a dance theatre performance, written and directed by Drew Taylor, and performed by Olivia Knowles, Katie Armstrong, Tom Jackson-Greaves and Bugg Vincent.

‘poetic masterpiece… utterly flamboyant, brutally honest and totally endearing’
