Synopsis


An exhilarating new theatre project led by Emma Frankland, alongside very special guests.


Built from conversations with trans women and trans feminine people around the world, particularly the UK, Indonesia, Canada and Brazil, We Dig centres around the actual excavation of a giant hole - a literal representation of a queer community needing to bury itself for protection.


Live, direct and set to smash, rather than just break the mould, We Dig sees Emma and guests taking complete control as they dig deep into the historic Ovalhouse building to initiate our final season.


We Dig focuses on trans artists, communicating elements of their global situation, particularly targeting the needs of women and girls.


A collaborative devised process with other trans artists, including One From the Vaults host Morgan M Page and Indonesian celebrity and performance artist Tamara Pertamina.


We Dig will feature an innovative and exciting trans artist as the guest performer each night.
