  • Description

Award winning live performance and theatre artist Emma Frankland tackles the current media fascination with trans lives and interrogates the controversial bio-technology of HRT.

Bearing wings made of sharp knives and shooting fireballs into the air, Emma Frankland weaves stories of trans ancestry with an interrogation of the controversial bio-technology of HRT. Hearty connects the cycles of fetishisation, violence and erasure that trans people have experienced for centuries. It’s messy, it’s on fire and it’s politically-charged.

Hearty is the fifth and final solo show in Frankland’s None of Us is Yet a Robot project – a series of performances which have been a response to her gender transition and the politics surrounding trans identity over the past seven years.

“A ferocious cry for the safety of trans women, Brands don’t lead revolutions. People like Emma Frankland do” The Guardian

“Emma Frankland is the punk rock angel of your dreams and nightmares” The Stage
