Roll Up, roll up for the fearsome, breathtaking and astonishing HIV-positive Human Cannonball!

SHAFTED?! is an audacious, daring and unashamedly deviant HIV cabaret show, exploring and exposing the realities of HIV in today’s society. The show combines dance, performance, live music, stunts and spoken word to tell true life stories of people living with and affected by the virus. Come and be dazzled by our provocative performers and local, talented rebels!

The show is part of a wider body of activism combining workshops, mentoring schemes and direct actions UK-wide, in response to austerity cuts and the ‘Second Silence’ around the epidemic.

N.B. Please come dressed in your finest funeral attire.
