 Too Pretty To Punch
Summary:Artistic collaboration
Deadline: 31 December 2018
Date Posted: 19 October 2017
Details: CALL OUT 2:​ Artists + Musicians
Iím looking for 3 transgender visual artists or animators and a musician/composer/sound engineer to collaborate with to make animation for a new piece of theatre, Too Pretty To Punch that Iíll be developing throughout 2018.

Too Pretty To Punch is a one person celebration of trans visibility and self acceptance; a mix of clown, mime, music, spoken word and video projection focusing on societyís obsession with trans bodies, judging our acceptability on how attractive we are.
The idea behind the project is to celebrate gender diversity while dispelling myths about trans people; presenting us as we are, rather than as the monsters the media seems so hell bent on painting us as.

Artists:
My writing is vibrant, lively, and often full of pop culture references though Iím interested in all styles and mediums of art to collaborate with (digital, 3D, oil, pastel, watercolour, charcoal, collage, sculpture, comic book etc).

Iím interested in you bringing your voice to the table, creating and contributing based on your own experiences as a transgender person.

In its most basic form this will involve creating a series of still images to accompany poetry and physical theatre, that I will animate by various means depending on the medium and style and then projection map onto a selection of boxes and surfaces around the stage.

Sound/Music:
This role will involve creating music/soundscapes to accompany the projections and poems.

It will also involve helping write the music and record backing tracks for several songs in the show that Iím writing. Iíll accompany myself for some of them on the banjo. One such song is all about different gender identities, set to the powerpuff girls and transformers theme tunes.
