Susie Timney will present her piece Bare (8 Shades of Red), an autobiographical solo performance. Using elements of cabaret and burlesque, Susie will take you on a journey through the most significant moments of her life so far. Taking you on a titillating tour through feathers and frustration, the piece explores what happens when you are afraid to "bare all", both emotionally and physically, and exposes the power, the pain and the pleasures that come from daring to trust. Using 8 shades of red, and 8 personal experiences, she explores her challenging issues and faces her fears, leaving herself Bare. Susie is a graduate artist from the University of Chichester, currently studying for an MA in Performance (Theatre).

Darren Purnell brings his drag-persona La Bouche on a micro-tour of the San Francisco nightlife and drag scene. La Bouche lip syncs slowed down classic drag numbers and different songs as well as spoken texts. She covers ideas such as the notion of the mask, the male body and sexuality.
‘Stand him on that plinth and watch her perform
For she is his special creation, her prerogative is to have a little fun
For he is a drag and she is a queen.’
