New Queer Voices, Outspoken
Patterflash! is a literary variety show, combining the best traditions of live literature with all the energy and verve of queer performance.
We will draw upon the range of queer life–from ballroom culture to protest movements, from house music to cabaret, from drag to stand-up, from pride to the ‘gay language’ Polari–to vivify our stories of contemporary queer Britain.
Six writers of diverse backgrounds will travel to Edinburgh to perform this exciting new show: Tara Ali Din, Jane Bradley, Barnaby Callaby, Jamal Gerald, Adam Lowe and Rebecca Swarray. (For more about our writers, visit our writers’ page.)
NB: Young Enigma is a not-for-profit organisation and entirely dependent upon donations and grants for its core activities.
