Following a successful run at Clapham Omnibus Theatre earlier this year Live To Tell, created and performed by theatre maker and playwright Brian Mullin, comes to Camden People’s Theatre from 4th to 15th April.
Brian mixes hilarious humour and camp music references with raw, authentic experiences of life with HIV medication, and the messy emotions that rise up after years of getting by and trying to feel ‘well’ day to day with HIV.
Live To Tell mashes up queer history and pop artifice into some highly personal Confessions on a Dancefloor. Sure, medicine can suppress a virus, but how do we keep on living? Just like a prayer, this show will take you there.
Alongside the show, Brian has been collaborating with Positive East on a series of creative workshops Express Yourself. There’s a special performance on 5th April followed by a panel discussion, and excerpts from the work that people with HIV created during the Express Yourself workshop series. There’s also an exhibition of these creative responses in the theatre foyer throughout the run.
