There is to be no wailing at the death of the Sissy.

Where 4 Roads Meet: Death and the Sissy marks the culmination of provocative performance-maker Nando Messias’ decade-long Sissy trilogy, facing up to the social disappearance of the sissy and the violent fatality that's inherently at stake in the queer condition.

The scene is a roundabout where four roads meet, a site of memory, death and rebirth. What is the Sissy's legacy? How can it be mourned? What is discarded?

Open from 6-7.15pm, alongside the performance stands a Museum of the Sissy, a curiosity cabinet for the genuine and the phenomenal. See the gowns, objects and a few unseen items that have made up the past decade of this exploration.

Where 4 Roads Meet: Death and the Sissy brings us face to face with the urgent danger and beauty of our times.

Presented by And What? Queer Arts Festival and generously supported by Arts Council England, Queen Mary University of London and Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
