Atlantic Cruises, a performance in collaboration with Ebun Sodipo. 25mins. 

Atlantic Cruises is a 20 min scripted conversation, funny but also tragic, between Ebun and I, about what queer means to us. We wear paper ship hats, inspired by the one Grace Jones nabbed from Philip Treacy in the 80s, Black Joe, the 19thC Covent Garden performer, and our ancestors’ Atlantic crossing in which their gender was queered forever.
