Embittered Swish (VIC)
Gorging on hormones, a coven of trannies launch a terrorist attack on the body, rewiring the circuitry of sex and resistance. But when the lights come up and the anaesthetic wears off, the consequences of disrupting the hardware of gender become painfully apparent.
Interrogating contemporary transgender realities, performance collective Embittered Swish (Romy Fox, Mossy 333, Bobuq Sayed, Mick Klepner Roe) returns to the stage with a dark gesture to a near future. Fuelled by an urgent eroticism, Estrogenesis fuses movement, lyricism, video and live sound art to tell a story of body hacking, shape-shifting, ostracism and the allure of teetering on the edge.
Estrogenesis has been assisted by Creative Victoria, the Victorian Government through the Healthy Equal Youth program and Brunswick Mechanics Institute.
