“Your child is like a cheap rubber ball – neither here nor there, neither this nor that, hard to control and causing problems, blurring lines and asking difficult bloody questions.

Please see me.”

Shorty is a deconstructed drag-child, who frays at the edges and plays at the edges. And almost falls apart.

This show looks at the position of the non-binary child, and the relationship with the mind when the body is under attack. It champions the not-quite, the slight and the awkward. Shorty brings a spare change of clothes to most places, and usually has to use them.

About the Artist
Hester Chillingworth makes performance work and low-key interventionist installations. The work often plays with language, simplicity, interpretation and some things about childhood, including mischief and confusion.

Hester is Thinker-in-Residence on Young People, Gender and Live Art at the Live Art Development Agency in London, Creative Producer (Participation & Engagement) for Forced Entertainment, and Artistic Director of GETINTHEBACKOFTHEVAN performance company.

Shorty was the Chisenhale Dance Space (London) and Marlborough Theatre (Brighton) 2016 Small Spaces commission.
