ANYTHING THAT LOVES Lobby Exhibit During Our April 2014 Production of COCK
During the run of Cock by Mike Bartlett (April 4 – 27 at The Theatre Centre, 1115 Queen St W) we’ll be finding more than a few ways to go Beyond the Stage with our programming, encouraging dialogue and offering a number of ways for you to engage with our artists, subject matter experts, community organizations and the issues featured in the play.
Here’s a sneak peak at the lobby exhibit!
Look forward to seeing large-scale reproductions of artwork from the new and exciting comic anthology ANYTHING THAT LOVES: Comics Beyond “Gay” and “Straight” (edited by Charles “Zan” Christensen and published by Northwest Press, 2013). Visually stunning and thematically provocative, the exhibit offers another look at many of the play’s themes.
From the anthology:
“Why don’t you just come out already?”
“How can you be bi if you’re married?”
“You’ll do it with anything that moves.”
For all their differences, gay and straight people are often united in their problems with bisexuality. People who follow their hearts wherever they lead, regardless of gender, are still usually met with disbelief and suspicion.
From confessional, personal accounts to erotic flights of fancy to undersea identity politics, this collection of comics invites the reader to step outside of the categories and explore the wild and wonderful uncharted territory between “gay” and “straight.”
