A quick heads up for a couple of shows running this weekend under the Pink Fringe banner in Brighton.
My informant notes that they “know this is a crappy time for students, but thought it was worth flagging them up”.
Anyway, the shows are:
Thursday 29 March
Brian Lobel’s Ball and other funny stories about cancer. Brian is a lecturer at Queen Mary in Contemporary Performance, and his show is billed as “a unique performance about illness and the changing body over time”.
Friday/Saturday 30-31 March
There is also a company visiting from Glasgow called Fish and Game with their show about lesbian stereotypes and archetypes Strange Hungers. Visitors to the show are invited to “bask in the squalid sapphistry of your filthy hosts, Claude and Maud, as we root around history’s icons and dykons”.
Both present interesting perspectives on gender and queer identity.
