Let's Not Beat Each Other To Death
The Accidental Mechanics Group
Inspired in part by the brutal killing of a Halifax queer activist and an attack against an outspoken gay musician, its scope expands outward and becomes a search for explanation, compassion and catharsis on a larger global scale. Part monologue, part concert; the show is a tribute to and celebration of LGBTQ people around the world who have been affected by violence, and asks us to search for the roots of violence within ourselves. As a participatory event that combines dance, theatre, and music, the piece offers audiences the chance to remember, celebrate, think and dance.
Inspired by tragedy and driven by hope, Halifax’s Stewart Legere pays tribute in this provocative, participatory work to queer people around the world who have suffered bigotry and violence. It’s a genre-defying celebration where theatre, memorial and dance party collide in a beautiful, sweaty, cathartic act of deliverance.
Cardiff's own Stephen Phillips will be DJing the dance party! Stephen is a Cardiff based arts worker and queer DJ, co-founder of Cardiff based queer/drag club night Hey Mary and host of Green Man Festival's first queer radio show.
