A live graphic novel presented through dance, theatre, and animation, exploring the roles of hero and villain in contemporary culture in an era where your 15 minutes of fame is often followed by a lifetime of infamy. In a world of Twitter wars, cycling news feeds and cancel culture, come explore the myths and legends we create, destroy and forget in the rise and fall from viral fame to infamy — all within the course of any given week.

With a multi-screen installation by video artist David Fishel, this dance-theatre performance weaves a tale of mysterious characters, conflicted heroes, innocent bystanders and big, big bad guys.

A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
