Inspired by conversations over the past year with queer and trans women in Brazil and Jakarta, Emma explores attitudes to menopause alongside the liberation of her own body as a transgender woman.
It’s messy, it’s intense and it’s politically-charged.
Hearty is the fifth performance created as part of None of Us is Yet a Robot, a project reflecting on trans lives and the politics of transition.
Premiering at The Yard, 13 – 17 February 2017
Hearty is commissioned by The Yard and Kings College London, with support from BAC, Hall for Cornwall, The Spire and Arts Council England.
