WINNER TOTAL THEATRE AWARDS 2019

SHORTLISTED FOR THE CAROL TAMBOR BEST OF EDINBURGH AWARD

Hurled words. Thrown objects. Dodged Burgers.

After someone threw a burger at them and shouted a transphobic slur, performance artist Travis Alabanza became obsessed with burgers.

How they’re made, how they feel, and smell. How they travel through the air. How the mayonnaise feels on your skin.

This show is the climax of their obsession – exploring how trans bodies survive and how, by them reclaiming an act of violence, we can address our own complicity.

Carving out a place for themselves as one of the UK’s prominent trans voices, Alabanza presents a performance that is timely, unsettling and powerful.

Alabanza takes an act of violence and transforms it into something both beautiful and brutal

Lyn Gardner, Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

Humane and heart-rending… Alabanza is sassy and witty, feeding off the audience like a seasoned cabaret star
