tonsillitis sux! – Ollie Musson
Posted on 30.11.2018
Womp was supported through Making Ways Open Call funding to deliver a programme of curated exhibitions, events and studio exchanges aiming to support the development of emerging and early career artists. tonsillitis sux! – an all singing, all dancing performance exploring the insides and outsides of Ollie Musson’s body – is the first in this event series. The performance will explore the effects of illness, trauma and gender dysphoria. How do we care for ourselves whilst struggling against medical gate-keeping? How do we rest when the rest aren’t resting? How do we keep fighting whilst looking after our broken, leaking bodies?
Ollie is a queer non-binary performer who has been working in residence in Womp Studios to develop this new work.
This event forms part of Making Ways, a programme supported by Sheffield Culture Consortium through Arts Council England to showcase, celebrate and develop the exceptional contemporary visual art produced in the city.
