Under disco lights, over pulsing music, a queer celebration takes place. Set in nightclubs, Sound Cistem is a joyous verbatim show about the cisgender gaze on the transgender body.
★★★★ “Tremendously powerful, moving and euphoric.” The Scotsman
Featuring recorded interviews with trans and non-binary people, a self-love manifesto is made through a riotous, glittering disco. This duo keep moving to reject conformity and shame, despite the current ‘transgender debate’.
Sound Cistem asks you to see the beauty in these bodies, and your own too. Sound Cistem is a celebration of queer bodies, and a radical call against the policing of them.
★★★★ “A positive sense of fun and empowerment.” The List
In today’s media firestorm, transgender people have their validity, existence and worth freely called into question. Our society is avidly fixated on trans bodies, as shown by live television, front page headlines and Piers Morgan’s Twitter. Yet trans voices continue to be marginalised.
In Sound Cistem, a trans-man and a non-binary person reclaim their bodies from unwanted and dangerous narratives. They create their own sound, and turn it up loud.
★★★★★ “Astonishing to see, but also incredibly important.” A Younger Theatre
Devised by Ayden Brouwers and Lizzie Morris.
Sound Cistem will stream on Omnibus Theatre’s YouTube channel.
