WATERMELON 🍉 (WIP)
The show is currently being rescheduled due to the cancellation of the 2022 Vaults Festival. 🥺
Watch this space for the new dates. 🗓
Watermelon is a semi-autobiographical one woman show / extended traumadumping session by playwright and performer Enxi Erskine Chang. Join her as she unpacks the trials, tribulations and trauma of online discourse, cancel culture and the consumption, commodification and brutalisation of trans bodies in spaces online and IRL.... tl;dr a standard Tuesday night when you're a trans girl on the internet.
First aired as an extract at part of the Royal Court Queer Upstairs script-in-hand performances. This edition is an early try out of the full length material and needs an audience to grow- come be part of the process.
Enxi is a British-Chinese writer, actor, spoken word poet and rapper. Her work has been aired at the Southbank Centre, the Royal Court and on Benjamin Zephaniah’s Life and Rhymes. She is also a TikToker who, in addition to making thirst traps, uses her platform to discuss intersectional racial, gender and sexual politics, with other educational content that touches on classical Chinese culture, linguistics, music and more.
