Bisexuals on the Fringe
Past BCN cover stars Blazing Change Players bring their bisexual performance piece By the Bi to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for five days this coming week.
Told through a series of fifteen vignettes utilizing a unique cohesion of music, dance, and spoken word, By the Bi unpacks how society’s isolation of bisexual culture perpetuates harmful and hurtful stereotypes of bisexuality, including confusion, greediness and promiscuity.
It’s intended as an open platform that not only discusses the oppression and invisibility of the bisexual community, but works to celebrate the beauty and individuality of its members. It is not only a show, but a proactive step forward in the movement for social equality. Audience members have called it “a beautiful tribute to difference, and an anthem for the bisexual community”.
BCP was co-founded by American actors Morgan Barbour and Caroline Downs September 2014. They are both bisexual women and are very passionate about the opportunity to shed a light on issues within their community.
August 24 – 28: 10:20am daily, Spotlites, Venue 278, 22 Hanover Street, Edinburgh. Tickets £7.50 – £10.00. www.spotlites.co.uk
