XXX NEON SIGN (2019) WP
DAN THORPE

People always ask, what was it like to work in a porno shop?

Composer | performer Dan Thorpe brings queer Adelaide to Bendigo in the world premiere of his adaptation of James Andre’s 2010 epic poem XXX neon sign. BIFEM audiences familiar with our presentation history of transdisciplinary works such as BUG, Sirius, XXX_LIVE_NUDE_GIRLS!!! and Superimpose will doubtless add Dan Thorpe’s BIFEM début appearance to the alt-canon of hybrid classics our festival weaves.
This performance will contain nudity and live flames. Of course.

XXX Neon Sign is supported by Australia Council for the Arts and the City of Greater Bendigo and presented in association with RUMPUS. XXX Neon Sign was developed with the generous support of a 2018 Carclew Fellowship, in association with Arts Letters and Numbers (NY), with the mentorship of Mary Prescott and Amy Beth Kirsten. XXX Neon Sign was written and developed on Lenape and Kaurna Land, and we pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging and recognise their ongoing sovereignty.
