We’re really excited it’s Oxford Pride in June! Oxford Playhouse and Arts at the Old Fire are bringing three great LGBTQ+ shows to Oxford as part of Offbeat 2019.
From Thursday 20 to Saturday 22 June, Olivier Award-winning play Rotterdam comes to the OP Main Stage. A moving and sensitive exploration of gender identity and relationships, this bittersweet comedy is written by Jon Brittain co-creator of Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho, and writer of What Would Spock Do? and The Sexual Awakening of Peter Mayo.
Contemporary dance company Thomas Page Dances brings A Moment to the OFS Theatre from Tuesday 25 to Thursday 27 June. Responding to Bren Gosling’s Moment of Grace, in this intimate duet two performers explore what it was to be gay in the 80s when the UK was full of fear and ignorance. The work also gives thanks to those who made it possible to say “HIV is no longer a death sentence.”
From Wednesday 26 to Friday 28 June in the OFS Studio, Plaster Cast invites you to a radically-queer dance party, Sound Cistem! Set in nightclubs, Sound Cistem is an exuberant dance show about the cisgender gaze on the transgender body. Through riotous, glittering disco, shame is rejected and a self-love manifesto made. Unafraid to punch hard, Sound Cistem asks you to see the beauty in these bodies: and your own too.
