Hearty in Worthing | Emma Frankland | 21st May 2022 | Pavilion Theatre, Worthing, West Sussex
Hearty in Worthing at Pavilion Theatre, on 21st May 2022, bearing wings made of sharp knives and shooting fireballs into the air, Emma Frankland weaves stories of trans ancestry with an interrogation of the controversial biotechnology of HRT.
Award-winning live performance and theatre artist Emma Frankland tackles the current media fascination with trans lives and interrogates the controversial biotechnology of HRT.
Bearing wings made of sharp knives and shooting fireballs into the air, Emma Frankland weaves stories of trans ancestry with an interrogation of the controversial biotechnology of HRT. Hearty connects the cycles of fetishisation, violence and erasure that trans people have experienced for centuries. It’s messy, it’s on fire and it’s politically charged.
Hearty is the fifth and final solo show in Frankland’s None of Us is Yet a Robot project – a series of performances that have been a response to her gender transition and the politics surrounding trans identity over the past seven years.
“A ferocious cry for the safety of trans women, Brands don’t lead revolutions. People like Emma Frankland do” The Guardian “Emma Frankland is the punk rock angel of your dreams and nightmares” The Stage
