What does it mean to be human in an era when our destructive influence over the planet is rapidly redefining the laws of nature? This magnetic performance by Justin Shoulder introduces Carrion: a post-human spectre with the ability to shapeshift into multiple forms and speak multiple languages.
Drawing on queer and bicultural ancestral mythologies, Carrion transports us into a place where the distant past collides with the far future, alerting us to the changes that already lie within ourselves.
See Carrion as part of our Gala Opening double bill alongside Davy Pieter’s How Did I Die at Warwick Arts Centre on Tuesday 15th October. Our special price double bill ticket includes a free return bus leaving Birmingham at 6pm from Minerva Works and returning after the last show. Double bill ticket available here.

‘Mesmerising and tender, elemental and fantastical, Carrion is a rite, a birth, a speculation – morphing the ‘natural’ in a unique vision of physical performance possibilities.’– Australian Arts Review
Justin is our favourite club performer. We’ve been following his incredible work (and costumes!) on Instagram for years and now he’s made a brilliant theatre show too. We’re thrilled to finally bring him over for his major European debut performances. See him now before he becomes a household name.
