    Intimate flatmates, Ruby and Rose, both at a crossroads with who they thought they were, meet for a devilishly revealing tarot reading. Their subconscious desires burst and scuttle through their attempts to resist... Belinda interrogates the bi+ experience through a kaleidoscope - the migrant experience of queerness, the weight of past relationships, queerbaiting, expectations both within and without the queer community. They need that space, but question their right to it.
    At times hysterically funny, intriguingly absurd, and brutally honest, Belinda (Offies Award Nomination IDEA Production: Experimental Theatre) is tribute to queer joy, and the euphoric pursuit of embracing yourself.

    Credits:

    Written and performed by Amy-Rose Edlyn and Emilia Nurmukhamet.

    Oil Projections by Ruby Ingleheart.

    Sound Design by Vika Vinnikova and Dear Annie.

    Lighting Design by Venus Raven

    Co-devised, developed and produced by the Bold Mellon Collective.

    Programmed by Alexandra Craveiro:

    "Very rarely have I come across work that balances migration, queerness, and the combined struggle of both in the arts but this one does so honestly. The work questions the nature of programming and having a space to show work – too on topic not to program."
