"One of the most emotionally intense and moving pieces I saw all weekend." - Paper Champion
iNk'D follows the story of a couple, a cis man and a trans woman, and explores through contemporary new style, physical theatre and spoken word the modern trials, tribulations and celebrations this couple may combat within society. Designed to inform and educate an audience to the importance of transitioning; understand the reasoning behind transitioning; and most importantly expressing that love is universal and transcendent for everyone the show connects and challenges an audience to ask themselves the difficult questions regarding their preconceived notions of the Trans Community.

MUSICAL SAMPLES FROM iNk'D
The following are a few of the songs I wrote for iNk'D which featured a completely original score and spoken work written by myself with soundscapes by Shaun Rimmer.
"...I followed this up with my first ever visit to the Headgate Theatre to catch iNk’d, which ended up being one of the most emotionally intense and moving pieces I saw all weekend. This two person dance performance explored the relationship between a transitioning trans woman and a cis man, a biographical piece which really felt raw and honest. At some points it felt hard to watch as you completely empathised with the characters but, as the powder was spread from the box you could feel the cathartic release that came with it. A really powerful piece of art." - Paper Champion
