ABOUT THE PROJECT:
"The Barbette Project" adapts the true story of Barbette, a legendary gender-bending trapeze artist, as woven with the lived experiences of LGBT+ circus artists today.
This show is currently being researched and devised by Stav Meishar and a small team of LGBT+ artists. We're looking at how concepts of gender set by society are affecting us and trying out different exercises to explore these themes, drawing on our own experiences as well as survey responses we’ve collected from LGBT+ people, particularly those in the circus industry.
The result will be what we call "open source play" - a road map, a script that leaves space for any performer (or multiple!) to combine their personal history with Barbette’s story. Any performer who relates to these themes could use our “open source play” to make a show that’s totally unique to them.
