Horsemeat

Bold, brash and brutally honest, HORSEMEAT confronts the gritty realities surrounding gay love, family life, sexuality and the pains of growing up. Set against a backdrop of music which mixes the camp disco beats of Erasure with the serene beauty of Chopin via the glam rock sounds of T-REX, esteemed performer Janusz Orlik plunges head first into a nightmarish playground of frantic movement and thriving gestures in this all singing, all dancing autobiographical solo. Created in collaboration with dance mavericks Javier De Frutos and the late Nigel Charnock, HORSEMEAT presents a series of episodes that are thought provoking, deeply intimate and powerfully engaging.
