'Erase Erase Erupt' is a new festival of in-development queer and feminist theatre and performance. Across four evenings artists will explore queerness, sexual violence, gender identity and more in a range of mediums: theatre, spoken word, song, cabaret, drag. Expect a glorious programme of work from exciting emerging artists, pushing the boundaries of form and content, learning, discovering and exploding.
It is time for the voices of those who are usually erased, to erupt.
Across four nights, the festival features two alternating programmes, details of which can be found below.
We have fought.
We have flown.
We have frozen.
And we have fucked.
Three people have stories to tell. These are stories of smeared consent, sexual violence, rape. Let’s create a space in which to hear them. Let’s create a space in which they can respond to them.
This is a play about voices and spaces and sexual violence. It is also a play about kindness.

'More Americans believe they have seen a ghost than have met a trans person' - Faye Seidler
Based on interviews and archives from the trans and non-binary community, Dead Reckoning is a journey with no map to follow, where we’re making the rules up as we go along. How, as trans and non-binary people, do we write ourselves full of joy? How do we write ourselves living?
