Coming back to the CPT:
“Bold, honest, full of comedy and yet heartbreaking”—Pablo Roa, screenwriter, Netflix’s Money Heist.
A five year old boy who doesn’t know which toilet to use. A whole scene where the performer, Luis Amália, speaks to the rhythm of a metronome while doing stepping. A horny teenager who doesn’t get laid because he is The Mascot (and a terrible footballer). A visit to a sexy, sweaty, sauna with too much body hair. Losing an Olympic medal in the Gymnastics Floor Final. Becoming a legendary Hollywood actress.
—Is this serious?—Yes! Stigma can combine all these random events and characters and make them work.
Believe me, you haven't tried a show like this before.
You are going to laugh at how pathetic life can be and then experience tears of joy (or melancholy, you decide) at the same time.
Please, don’t do it at home!
Come and watch the one hour solo-show about having the courage to be who and what you want to be (even if you think you are being a freak).
Stigma is BSL interpreted on 17th June.
There will be a 45min Post-Show Talk on 15th and 16th of June with some artists and thinkers.
On the 15th we'll discuss about the pressure society puts on our bodies (especially queer ones) in parallel to the debate on mental health in sport.
And on the 16th we'll have a group of performers talking about acting while queering the industry through their bodies (accents, appearance, ideas...)
The 7.15pm performance of Stigma on 15th and 16th June will be Enhanced by Extant - This means there will be live accessible programme notes and a touch tour describing the set, props and characters before the performance starts for visually impaired audiences.

“It means so much to be working at CPT, it’s such a good opportunity to work in a professional environment at my age. I didn’t think that was ever going to happen and it means the world to me. It’s really going to help prepare me for my future and where I want to go”
