Where 4 Roads Meet: Death and the Sissy
Thursday 12th October
Museum of the Sissy: 6-7.15pm
Toynbee Studios, London
There is to be no wailing at the death of the Sissy.
Where 4 Roads Meet: Death and the Sissy marks the culmination of provocative performance-maker Nando Messias’ decade-long Sissy trilogy, facing up to the social disappearance of the sissy and the violent fatality that's inherently at stake in the queer condition.
The scene is a roundabout where four roads meet, a site of memory, death and rebirth. What is the Sissy's legacy? How can it be mourned? What is discarded?
Open from 6-7.15pm, alongside the performance stands a Museum of the Sissy, a curiosity cabinet for the genuine and the phenomenal. See the gowns, objects and a few unseen items that have made up the past decade of this exploration.
Where 4 Roads Meet: Death and the Sissy brings us face to face with the urgent danger and beauty of our times.
