From the blurred identities and frolics of Midsummer Night’s Dream to the cruising grounds of Derek Jarman’s Modern Nature, the woods have always been places where identities are concealed and sexuality explored under the cover of the leaves.
Join us at Out in the Forest for a queering of the landscape at Magic Spells Brewery on the edges of Epping Forest. Expect performances from the Radical Faerie Drum Circle, Sgàire Wood, Rhys' Pieces. Music from Black Obsidian Sound System (B.O.S.S), Lewis G. Burton (INFERNO) and Sophie Coletta with more to be announced.
The line up so far:
- Radical Faerie Drum Circle
- Sgàire Wood
- Rhys' Pieces
- Government DJ (Black Obsidian Sound System/B.O.S.S)
- Lewis G. Burton (Inferno)
- Gin (Resis Dance, Nite Dykez)
- Charity Kase
- Sophie Coletta
This will be a magical night, with space to dance hard and soft; weeds crack concrete, the moon pulls you. Come out!
Out in the Forest is part of The People's Forest season - a series of events exploring our relationship with Epping Forest, interrogating the deep bond we have with forests and woodland, and how this relationship is culturally determined.
