BREASTS BECOME HER
Breasts Become Her (BBH) is a solo cabaret show written and performed by Miss Cairo, a queer transgender cabaret artist of colour which poses the question: At what point am I considered a woman?
The Mentor is Amanda Redfern: a one-time Hollywood star whose life has spiralled in later years. When she begins tutoring young actor Jordan Ridley, the two discover a vastly different set of perceptions across themes of sexism, ageism, respect, consent, and mental health; their methodologies as actors fuelled by vastly different lived experience.

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO DINOSAURS
The World According to Dinosaurs is an interrogation of globalism through the lens of paleontology, world events and what we had for dinner last night. A culmination of the stories we tell ourselves about existence. Fact, fiction, wives’ tales, white lies, myths, learnt behaviours, common misconceptions - it’s all part of the human narrative.
How do we connect to others? Has this changed given the current global climate? How do we connect to self, others and the world outside ourselves? How do we connect as artists to explore concepts and ideas? What is that point of connection where our different art forms and artistic expressions meet? Using group devised theatre processes and assembling a group of creatives from varying artistic backgrounds and training; Stacey aims to bring together a group of theatre makers to use these questions as a launching point for exploration and play!
