Brighton Festival 2018 Bitesize - Before I Step Outside (You Love Me)

May 12, 2018, 12:46 PM

An evening of Black trans poetics with one of the UK’s leading trans voices - combining spoken word with soundscapes, projections and animation in collaboration with Daniel Braithwaite Shirley. 

Travis Alabanza presents a feature performance from their acclaimed debut book of poetry. Through diary entries, images, poems and essays, Travis reveals their experience as a trans person navigating public spaces: being on the street, being on public transport, being harassed, stared at, and surviving. 

Rebecca Sandles caught up with Travis to find out what is in store for the audience.
