CLUB SOLO presents solo performances KINGS CROSS (REMIX) by Tom Marshman (followed by an after-show discussion on Wednesday)
KINGS CROSS (REMIX) by Tom Marshman
Kings Cross (Remix) uncovers the hidden histories of LGBT communities in London during the 1980s through memories of the Kings Cross area; an area that has undergone radical change since its day as a hub of LGBT communities, bars and culture. Woven together from the stories of people who experienced it first hand, Tom’s show celebrates a raucous, riotous time in the life of central London where sexuality was for exploring, HIV was causing tragedy, and rights were to be fought for.
Tom is a performance artist who transforms everyday accounts into theatre by weaving together stories worth telling. Previous work includes the acclaimed Move Over Darling.
“One of the most exciting things about Marshman’s work is his ability to pick a seemingly small subject and peel back the layers to expose something unexpectedly profound.”
