Burgerz by Travis Alabanza

Hurled words. Thrown objects. Dodged burgers.

After someone threw a burger at them and shouted a transphobic slur, performance artist Travis Alabanza became obsessed with burgers.

How they’re made, how they feel, and smell. How they travel through the air. How the mayonnaise feels on your skin.

This show is the climax of their obsession – exploring how trans bodies survive and how, when they reclaim an act of violence, we can address our own complicity.

Carving out a place for themselves as one of the UK’s prominent trans voices, Alabanza presents a performance that is timely, unsettling and powerful.

Presented by Hackney Showroom and Southbank Centre.
