Kings Cross [Remix]

KINGS CROSS [REMIX] at Zion Community Space Wed 5 July 2017 from 07:30 pm

Bristol Pride presents a special outing of Kings Cross (Remix) for Pride Week.

Performance artist Tom Marshman uncovers the hidden histories of LGBT+ communities in London during the 1980s through memories of Kings Cross; an area that has undergone radical change since its day as a hub of LGBT communities, bars and culture.

Tom transforms everyday accounts into theatre by weaving together stories of people who experienced it first-hand. This show celebrates a raucous, riotous time in the life of central London where sexuality was for exploring, HIV was causing tragedy, and rights were to be fought for.

This event takes place in the Zion Community Space is in Bedminster Down, BS13 7JW. Zion works hard to showcase diversity in this area of Bristol.

Plus Tom has invited his favourite artist to deliver and fun and egging writing workshop. Karen McLeod is a writer and performance artist. Fun Fabrications at Zion Community Space a writing workshop with Karen McLeod, supported by Tom Marshman.

What used to be a methodist Church (way back in ooh 2008) has now been morphed into a non-profit creative area for bedminster down. It hasn't been running for long so give it a chance but it definitely holds potential to bring a lively music scene to the area.

what they say: 'Zion is a ‘not-for-profit’ social enterprise, all income is used to create a sustainable future for the Community Art Space, we are not funded and rely on our events and activities to fund the space. If you would like to get involved and help create a better community for everyone please get in touch, we welcome all ideas and suggestions!'
