    Have you ever looked where you were told not to? What remains from the uncomfortable histories?

    Victor made a decision to celebrate those in his family the least spoken of… an estranged great-aunt, a queer great-uncle, and an infamous great-grandfather who died and lived in Beirut, Lebanon…

    Victor Esses is a Jewish-Lebanese Brazilian queer multimedia performance artist exploring belonging, resilience and intimacy. In this work-in-progress performance of The Death and Life of All of Us he mixes experimental performance, live music, and documentary film to explore shame, family history and intergenerational trauma. A reclaiming of erased histories, complexity and humanity.


    Music by and performed by Enrico Aurigemma
    Associate Artist Yorgos Petrou

    Tobi King Bakare and this theatre deserve a shout-out for such a young, diverse audience. There is so much talk about audiences being full of over 60s and why, why can’t theatres get the crowds in to reflect society in general? Well, I’m happy to say that on a rainy Thursday evening, the theatre was completely full.
