Transpose: The Future

CN Lester

A spirit of hopefulness characterises the third edition of Transpose at the Barbican, as trans voices come together to look to the future.

Featuring artists from across the generations collaborating in performances of opera, poetry, dance and electronica, this show considers what gender, identity and individuality might look like tomorrow – in a celebratory atmosphere.

Transpose is curated by CN Lester and directed by Kate O’Donnell, two of the trans community’s leading lights and multi-talented performers. In the words of CN, it’s a space in which ‘we can show you our vulnerabilities, our strengths, and – most of all – our authenticity.’
