Who owns history? Who gets to share it?
Double-Ender is a collaborative performance between visual artist Jez Dolan and playwright Joshua Val Martin, who each provide a fast-paced and engaging monologue drawn on their practice and lived experience as queer individuals.
As Jez and Joshua share their candid personal stories, they relate to the changing experiences of queer people living within a rapidly regenerating urban environment.
Double-Ender was supported as a research and development project and toured across Greater Manchester in Autumn 2021.
Life's a Drag
Life's a Drag is a meta-comedy wherein we observe two drag queens preparing backstage for a show.
While they bitch, kvetch, laugh and take us on a journey back in time via the make-up box, they teach one another about the relevance of their own particular school of drag and gayness, from Polari to RuPaul.
Polari Mission is a multidisciplinary exploration of queer identity and history through theatre, visual art, oral history and archival research to create an intergenerational approach to our shared and often unexplored stories.
We are proud to commission and create new work, encouraging the next generation of creatives and working alongside a wide range of practicing artists, practitioners and participants.W
