Queer Family

I'm Bitter About Glitter is a partly scripted, partly improvised exchange between a mother and her son about gender, sexuality, living as an art-making, sometimes unconventional family and how being the son of a live artist might affect an 8yr old's view on life. It is also a research & developement project including performances at Beacons Icons & Dykons, residencies and workshops at primary schools. We are working towards holding a symposium in 2018 around making queer performance work for and with children.

Roller skating and firing of glitter cannons are key elements to this work.
