SERIALLY QUEER

Serially Queer is unstitching body bags and peering into queer interconnectedness and internalised self-loathing.

A microphone and a queer. This isn’t a soapbox, it’s a confession.

Correspondence between the oppressor and the oppressed can often bring closure to a harmful relationship. Or it goes the other way too.

A mix of reality and fantasy, this piece blurs the lines to put the audience in physical proximity to someone who is not as they seem. With violence and fear driving world governance, this piece interrogates how the ‘other’ can be demonised to satiate the mainstream.
