And the Rest of Me Floats

And the Rest of Me Floats

'I was born in 1994, then came windows 95, And I would dive online to be the true me – A 2cm avatar with a denim mini and a high pony. Online all the time, to avoid conversation and the frustration of being a he, she, they or me… I felt free.'

Overview

And The Rest Of Me Floats is all about the messy business of gender. Performers from across the trans, non-binary, and queer communities weave together autobiographical performance, movement, pop songs, stand-up and dress-up in this anarchic celebration of gender expression and identity.

Playful and powerful, And The Rest Of Me Floats explores how it feels to live in a society where you are regularly categorised and policed. ‘Do you see me?’. Beyond the questions, the confusion, and the anger – ‘do you really see me?’
