About the Event
Eating the Copper Apple is a soul searching tale of identity by the prize-winning queer poet and writer lisa luxx. Shaped by lisa’s life, it weaves together politics and dreams, loss and fulfilment into a one-woman verse play that explores adoption and mixed-heritage.
Taking audiences on a voyage from West Yorkshire to the borders of Syria through family, romance and culture, the show asks a big question: how do we become who we are?
Both funny and philosophical, this profound piece of theatre examines the immense impact of displacement on our sense of self.
The show will be followed by a discussion with artist lisa luxx moderated by producer Alia AlZougbi.
lisa luxx is a queer writer, performer, essayist and activist of British Syrian heritage. She writes for freedom, for healing, to mobilise and to inquire.
