If you’re not sure if you’re a man, or a woman, how do you survive when the world expects you to tick just one box?
Based on truth, A Gender Odyssey is a surprisingly emotional cabaret. Performing with glamour and style, Hera Fox sits elegantly on the tipping point of perceived masculinity and femininity.
After years serving in smelly old footwear, Hera, ‘retail assistant extraordinaire’, is promoted to homewares and is now a pillow and quilt expert. As well as selling soft furnishings, Hera collects crayons, auditions compulsively, loves clubbing and bright colours, and just wants to find where they belong… or escape into their favourite musical numbers for solace and reprieve.
Using comedy and storytelling, and accompanied by the incredible Amanda Hodder on the piano, A Gender Odyssey is a heartfelt exploration of what it takes to thrive in a world defined by the expectations of others.
