Description

Welcome into the hallucinogenic and feverish mind of a physically traumatised dancer struggling to make sense of his horrific brutalisation and the aftermath. A visceral and poetic condemnation of LGBTQ violence, Marrow is a homage to the countless queer artists who make a positive impact on the world and those we know and love. You, the audience, are asked to witness the aftermath of violence and encouraged to access your power to condemn and prevent similar acts of hatred.

Another Fringe day, another single figure on a stage dissecting a “big issue of today”. But don’t let this unoriginal premise put you off Marrow, an extremely moving and gorgeously choreographed play which nearly brought me to tears more than once. This extraordinary one-man tour de force deals with the...
