Queer Fun

Duckie and Queen Mary University of London invite you to an afternoon of chin-scratching and high-kicking, during which having fun is to be taken very, very seriously indeed.

Join performers, researchers and punters for a half-day event, programmed by Ben Walters, exploring whether some forms of enjoyment can be considered properly queer and how they might shape the world.


Liselle Terret and Emma Selwyn/Not F..kin’ Sorry

Neurodivergent and learning disabled actors stick a middle finger up at the ableist gaze by performing forbidden behaviours and desires. Less stigma management, more stimming.

MADHOUSE catch the baby

Cian is London’s oldest baby. At 6ft tall, he struggles to fit into his cot. But fit he must – this is where people think he should stay…
 
Join Cian and his child-minder as he tries to makes sense of her trying to make sense of people trying to make sense of him. Just don’t let him out of your sight! He keeps trying to run away … such a handful.
