I’m Bitter About Glitter is a gentle exploration of identity and how this is presented in terms of gender and choice and also the roles we play in our lives; subjects that the glitter loving pair are both very interested in. IBAG probes questions of agency, accepted norms, motherhood and the family. For more information on the process behind IBAG, please see my blog.
The 10 minute cabaret piece has been commissioned by Beacons Icons & Dykons for their family edition of the queer film & performance platform at the Watershed, Bristol. It is supported by Arts Council Englad and directed by Lucy Cassidy (Schools Without Walls and The Egg, Bath)
