About: In Excelsis - A Personal History Of Glam Rock

A multi-media performance for anyone who came late to their teens, or to Glam, or to anything, for that matter

This event is part of Watch festival
Four compelling, disruptive, charming and beguilingly aberrant pieces of contemporary theatre on the themes of looking, hiding seeing, being seen – and changing.

In Excelsis – A Personal History Of Glam Rock
A multi-media performance by Mandy Romero
Directed by Cathy Butterworth

1973 – Glam Rock is beginning to blitz, rampage and hell-raise its way into the nation’s sensibility, and a young teacher begins his professional career at a West Midlands comprehensive school. Over the next four years their paths are destined to cross as that most conflicted decade edges forward through terrorist attacks, royal weddings, power-cuts and all kinds of adolescent angst.
For anyone who came late to their teens, or to Glam, or to anything, for that matter, “In Excelsis” will offer some choice reminders of growing pains and eye-liner misuse. Where did Glam come from? How do we get to be who we are? Transgender artist Mandy Romero, will provide some answers in this new show created especially for the SHOUT Festival in 2013, lighting up the map of the West Midlands from Dorridge to Wolverhampton, West Bromwich to Groveley Dingle.
Expect fish, distant constellations, patch pocket baggies and canal towpaths along the way to the show’s Apocatastic conclusion.
