LGBTQ+ storytelling from Belfast to Beirut

Is it possible to queer traditional storytelling?
Who tells our stories and why does it matter?
And what makes a good story?

In this special event in partnership with British Council Lebanon, we explore storytelling traditions and forms and examine how these have been revitalised and enriched by exciting new queer voices.
Included in our panel are our Artist In Residence, seasoned storyteller Richard O’Leary, and Dima Matta writer, professor, actor and spoken word artist from Lebanon. Dima founded the popular storytelling initiative Cliffhangers in 2014, which has since become a vital space for women and LGBTQ+ people in Beirut to share their own stories.
Join us an informal and welcoming evening of storytelling and discussion.

Mark Thomas: 50 Things About Us. Work In Progress
Nov 28 @ 7:30 pm

Doors 7:30PM

Start 8:00PM

 

In his new show 50 Things About Us Mark Thomas combines his trademark mix of storytelling, standup, mischief and really, really well-researched material to examine how we have come to inhabit this divided wasteland that some of us call the United Kingdom.

Mark picks through the myths, facts and figures of our national identities to ask who do we think we are?

It is a show about money, history, songs, gongs, wigs, unicorns, guns, bungs, sods of soil and rich fuckers.

And how we have so much feeling for such a hollow land.

(In the vein of the Manifesto meets a sweary history channel)

50 Things About Us is also a podcast (coming out in September) and a book published by September Publishing in February 2020 and an art exhibition… in Liverpool January 2020.
