Complete with challenges and commercials, The Gender Agenda has all the features of a game show, but turned on its head – think The Generation Game meets Southpark. Guided by a charismatic presenter, members of the audience are invited up onstage to play the game in this irreverent and funny exploration of gender (in)equality.
The first part of the evening features cabaret-style performances from spoken word artists and London Sinfonietta musicians. Re-capturing the spirit of change that accompanied the London Sinfonietta’s first ever concert in 1968, this event marks the ensemble’s return to Queen Elizabeth Hall in its re-opening festival.
Venables’ opera adaptation of Sarah Kane’s 4:48 Psychosis won him an RPS award and was nominated for an Olivier Award. His Illusions (2017) forms the later part of the evening, written as an address to the new government and featuring performance artist David Hoyle.
Supported by Art Mentor Foundation Lucerne in collaboration with London Sinfonietta, Ensemble Modern, Asko\Schönberg and Remix Ensemble Casa da Música
