This module analyses relationships between performance, sexuality and identity and how performance might be deployed in the service of specific political and cultural agendas. Through a consideration of a range of companies, performers, playwrights, organisations, photographers, filmmakers, for example, and critical writing, the module will consider a variety of topics which may include, but are not limited to: theories and histories of sexuality; marriage and civil partnerships; gay and lesbian theatre; television; HIV and AIDS; activism; club performance. In the course of this work we will consider how sexual identities intersect with other identity-forming discourses, especially gender and race/ethnicity.
