Following Rockbottom, his candid 2019 solo-self-portrait of struggle with depression and addiction, dance artist Stuart Waters has created a new duet to perform with actor and audio-describer Willie Elliott, co-directed with New Art Club’s Tom Roden, with movement direction by Anna Williams and music composed by Andy Pink.
A Queer Collision is a mash-up of private and historical queer stories that is both funny and poignant. Against a backdrop of LGBTQIA+ social history, Stu and Willie take us on a journey through their own tales of mischief and misadventure using dance, spoken word and comedy. Uniquely, audio description has been embedded into the creative process, to create an experience that is resonant and accessible for those with and without visual impairment.
The evening is presented by visually impaired cabaret artist and performer Ebony Rose Dark as a transformative, cross-artform night out where physicality, storytelling, joy and activism merge. There is an option for local queer cabaret artist to co-present the evening with Ebony Rose Dark.
