Mum, I’m in the fourth dimension, see! | 7.30pm
It’s bad rhyming as radical art practice,
A slow, pained moan, as queer cabaret,
Being a fucking drag, as drag.
Following the “fierce…beautiful… bizarre” (Exeunt) DRAG ON in NOW 17, Es Morgan returns to The Yard with Mum, I’m in the fourth dimension, see! A dance. A poem. A fit of rage.
A show that slips through the cracks between mass extinction and mass production, full automation and a full face of makeup.
Combining poetry, drag and Es Morgan’s hallmark hypnotic movement, it is a queer, secular hymn to the impending capitalist apocalypse.

Elision | 9pm
Imagine you are floating far away from everyone. You are not on a lilo, you are floating on a door. You are not warm, you are freezing cold. With you is someone really important to you. Do you share the door, or do you let them go?
Icelandic artist Gudrun Soley Sigurdardottir (BANNER Graduate Award winner 2016/17) is desperately trying to stay warm.
In a climate of division and disconnection, Elision explores national identity and ideas of belonging. Drawing on autobiography, pop culture and ice in its many forms, it is a hilarious yet tender show about what it’s like to feel left outside in the cold.
