About the event

Please note: this performance contains nudity. 

A second chance to see boychild perform, outwith the Club set on Friday. His final, separate performance is on Sunday. 

The young transgender artist boychild’s lip-sync drag performances re-appropriate fashion, Butoh or mainstream hetero-pop, not to sing it but to change its meaning completely. As a startling re-imagining of performance and pop-culture, they locate the body as a site for the negotiation of sexuality and blackness, in all its messiness, mobility and excess.
