After Violence

Baroque Drag: Gender, Masculinity and violence

Performed by drag queen Rhys's Pieces, non-binary vocalist Ella Taylor, lute player Sam Brown, and electronic musician Benjamin TassieAfter Violence explored gender, masculinity and male violence from a uniquely queer perspective. The cross-arts performance used songs by baroque composer John Dowland, recomposed for synths, lute, voice and drag queen, as well as text, movement and theatre.

After Violence was presented in partnership with the National Trust's Sutton House in Hackney and the Dulwich Picture Gallery in South London.

After Violence was made possible using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

An intense and beautiful performance
