Travis Alabanza - Burgerz
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 are made, how they feel, and smell. How they travel through the air. How the mayonnaise feels on your skin.
Burgerz is the climax of their obsession – exploring how trans and gender non-conforming bodies exist and how, by them reclaiming an act of violence, we can address our own complicity.
Travis Alabanza is a writer, performer and theatre-maker. Since 2014 they have been blending their unique mixture of poetry, performance, fashion and politics to establish themselves as one of the most prominent trans artistic voices within the UK.
