OBSTACLES (LATE NIGHT BUZZCUT SPECIAL)
Recorded in a stairwell at the Buzzcut Festival after party - in this episode, Emma talks about performance art, the 2016 Buzzcut line up and non-binary identities with double guests Ray Filar and Krishna Istha.
Ray is a performance artist, musician and writer, whose work often explores drag, genderfuck and kink. Their most recent show was FUCK SOUP at Buzzcut Festival, but they have performed widely, including Latitude Festival, at Pride London, with David Hoyle at the Chelsea Theatre, Trans Pride in Brighton, LaDIYFest Berlin, and as part of the Duckie Homosexualist Summer School for emerging queer artists. They are a contributing editor at openDemocracy magazine.
Krishna is a performance maker and actor. Their work takes the form of comedic political acts and alter egos that focus on themes of queer culture, gender politics and feminism. Their work more often than not turns into a physical and vocal endurance test.
You can find them online at @MXGenderslayer and @RayFilar
