ERASE ERASE ERUPT

A Queer and Feminist Theatre Festival

12th - 15th May 2019

'Erase Erase Erupt' is a new festival of in-development queer and feminist theatre and performance. Across four evenings artists will explore queerness, sexual violence, gender identity and more in a range of mediums: theatre, spoken word, song, cabaret, drag. Expect a glorious programme of work from exciting emerging artists, pushing the boundaries of form and content, learning, discovering and exploding.

It is time for the voices of those who have been erased, to erupt.

FULL PROGRAMME

The festival runs across four nights, with two alternating programmes, details of which can be found below.

FIGHT. FLIGHT. FREEZE. FUCK.

BY PINK FREUD THEATRE

12th and 14th May

We have fought.

We have flown.

We have frozen.

And we have fucked.


Three people have stories to tell. These are stories of smeared consent, sexual violence, rape. Let’s create a space in which to hear them. Let’s create a space in which they can respond to them.


This is a play about voices and spaces and sexual violence. It is also a play about kindness.

Reverend Jacob Adams

REVEREND JACOB ADAMS

12th and 14th May

With the end of the world right around the corner, spend your final days worshipping our lord and saviour: The GC.


The year 2019 was when it all went wrong. Politics were dividing the masses, our sacred spaces were being destroyed and people continued to wear Crocs. Now, in the year 2999, a small group of devout seek to find salvation through fake tan and hair extensions. The path to righteousness involves saving sinners, songs of praise and plenty of communion wine.


Join Reverend Adams' flock as he spreads the word of the one true diva.
