Where 4 Roads Meet: Death and the Sissy / Nando Messias –
There is to be no wailing at the death of the Sissy.
One of the most provocative performance makers in Britain today, Nando Messias promises us a truly extraordinary one-off event. Where 4 Roads Meet: Death and the Sissy marks the spectacular culmination of his decade-long Sissy trilogy, facing up to the social disappearance of the sissy and the violent fatality that’s inherently at stake in the queer condition.
The scene is a roundabout, where four roads meet, a site of memory, death and rebirth. What is the Sissy’s legacy? How can it be mourned? What is discarded? Alongside the performance stands a Museum of the Sissy, a curiosity cabinet for the genuine and the phenomenal.
