WED 5 JULY, 7pm

Tickets: £7 / £5 

Curious festival celebrates Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer cultures through the arts.

Phil Douglas is the Creative Producer of curious arts festival, and following a well-received pilot festival in 2016, Curious festival returns with Northern Stage is curious as the launch of the five day 2017 programme.

Showcasing new performance and writing from across the North, the evening features a work-in-progress sharing of Petrichor, by ZENDEH, and a celebration showcase of New Writing North’s Proud Words LGBT+ reading and creative writing project for young people.

There will also be an extract of Shorty by Hester Chillingworth, a solo show looking at the position of the non-binary child, and the relationship with the mind when the body is under attack. It champions the not-quite, the slight and the awkward.

Words Bare Exhibit

The evening will also feature the launch of Words Bare,  an LGBTQ print exhibition by Mandy Barker showcasing research-gathered comments and experiences the LGBTQ community still face in society today. The posters put LGBTQ social challenges into the limelight, and questions why these views are still very present today.
