activist, multidisciplinary performance by and with Telmo Branco
“The Unspeakable” is an activist multidisciplinary performance that addresses the culture of normalized abuse surrounding the queer experience, and its implications in our notions of memory, identity, and community.
This performance also examines the concept of perpetrator within the systemic erasure of queer people, and the way perpetrators are protected and encouraged.
What is queerphobia?
What is a perpetrator?
What is an unspeakable act?
What are the traumatic implications of queerphobia?
How is queerphobia and its adjacent trauma perpetuated within ourselves?
Through theatre, dance, poetry, and sound design, “The Unspeakable” will answer these questions. It will give voice to what has been silenced, repressed, and erased, celebrating truth.
