Rapture blends elements from spoken-word poetry with movement and fast-paced narrative action to paint a vibrant portrait of queer life in contemporary East London. The debut show from Pink Sky, a collective of LGBTQIA+ artists taking an interdisciplinary approach to making queer theatre, Rapture is a three-hander centring gender non-conforming identity, the politics of polyamory and radical self-expression.
Rapture is playing Pleasance Theatre London 28 June – 17 July 2022.
