Fat Life Drawing X The Civic

THURSDAY 2ND SEPTEMBER

We are going to be running a series of collaborative classes with the wonderful Fat Life Drawing throughout the No Boundaries season.

Fat Life Drawing is made up of Emily and Isobel; two sisters living in London and Harrogate who put together FLD after finding that most life drawing sessions lacked diversity and inclusivity.

Their goal has been to create a comfortable and safe, judgement-free space for like-minded creatives to come together.

They have been running virtual classes since June 2020 and have raised over £21,000 for various charities and fundraisers.

The sessions are conducted over Zoom, with a link being sent out to participants a short time beforehand.

We hope you can join us!

Civic Garden Party

SATURDAY 11TH SEPTEMBER 2021

Our annual Garden Party which takes place in Mandela Gardens (the space right next to The Civic) is a free, daytime event for families and residents to enjoy some live performance in the open air.

We are still in the process of putting together all the happenings for this event, but shows will include dance/theatre piece “Grow” by Kapow Dance, that looks at the power of nature to rejuvenate, take over spaces and grow through the cracks. There will also be live magic from Morgan and West with their new show The Three Musketeers.

The Museum of Transology

ONLINE EXHIBITION, 3RD SEPTEMBER 2021 – 31ST MARCH 2022

The Museum of Transology (MoT) is the UK’s most significant collection of material culture surrounding trans, non-binary and intersex lives. Participants have complete freedom to choose the object they wish to donate to represent their gender experiences. Each object has a brown tag attached to it with a hand-written message explaining its significance.

The collection halts the erasure of trans lives from history, tackles the misrepresentation of trans people in the political sphere, and combats the spectacularization of trans bodies and experiences by the mainstream media.

Mark Leeming – Bearded Brutes

SATURDAY 14TH AUGUST – SATURDAY 6TH NOVEMBER 2021

Bearded Brutes is a collection of vivid photographic portraits bursting with colour, sparkle and beards. Combining the masculinity of the bearded male with the camp flamboyance of heavy make-up and theatrical poses.  The collection presents an enjoyable, offbeat insight into juxtapositions of modern masculinity.

This was a personal project that organically grew into a collection of 24 kitsch portraits.  Each piece was created using costume, makeup, props and digital manipulation.

Taylor Le Fin – Common People (Scratch performance and Q&A)

SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2021

A lyrical, tragic comedy of a Different Class. Dragged up, poor, and queer in a 90’s Northern Town. Taylor Le Fin takes us on a tour of self-discovery, acceptance, survival and hope. Blending Spoken word/poetry, lip-syncs, comedy and heartbreak.

Britpop nostalgia and karaoke sing-alongs, stories of Misshapes, abandoned shopping trolleys, regrettable perms, and being saved by “Jarvis bloody Cocker!”

An ‘uncommon’ insight into the intersections of poverty, class, and the transmasculine experience.

Common People debuted at 100 Trans Voices, as part of Trans Vegas Manchester.

Either tie to Barnsley Pride if it takes place in September, or October for Off the Shelf.
