Posed as a Woman (work-in-progress) 

Tom Marshman

Through a process of historical and creative research, Tom Marshman shares the work at its early stages in order to gather feedback and mark the beginnings of an exploration into a life that we only know about through criminal records.

It gathers together research from historians at Newcastle archives, and from the University of Bristol, and mixes it up by collaborating with Canadian composer Jenny Moore, who composed and will perform original music as part of the piece.

The work also features a writing collaboration with writer and performer Enxi Chang, and raises questions of how to create a fully formed picture of someone from the past, particularly when LGBTQ+ and working class lives are largely documented through their often brutal encounters with the state.
