S/he Is Nancy Joe (Mirenka Cechova and Tantehorse)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

One woman tells her sister’s true story of growing up transgendered through graffiti, comics and contemporary dance. A very brave show, ‘S/he is Nancy Joe’ explores the pain and victimisation of one person trying to find their true identity. The piece was full of emotion and innovative dance, with a clear and thought-provoking story. However, as the use of technology was key to this performance, to be successful, it was essential that timing be spot on; unfortunately the show sometimes failed in that respect. Despite this, for the most part, the play made very clever use of said technology, though at times movements could have been more precise. Ultimately, it was a fearless and inventive show, with an uplifting ending.

Zoo Southside, until 18 Aug (not 6, 12, 13), 1.30pm.
