Anatomy of a Panic by Clumsy Bodies 
Anatomy of a Panic is a multi-media performance looking at the current Trans moral panic and “think of the children” narrative, looking at how we can use the childhood imagination to envision better futures for ourselves.

Werk in Progress by SamOne SamTwo
Werk in Progress is a movement piece which interrogates what it is to exist, dream and strive in England as queer second generation migrants.

Unicorns by Lazana Shabazz 
Unicorns tells the story of what it is be queer person of colour in the LGBTQ+ community where recurring narratives are erased throughout history. “When did my story become a brown mythology?..Categorised and archived before my birth.”

WHAT IS Raze?
Raze is a charity established to support, develop and nurture queer performance in the UK. We have defined queer performance as "performing arts undertaken by people who identify as Lesbian, Gay Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Intersex (LGBTQI+) or that contains LGBTQI themes, content or context."

We're called Raze as the organisation was established in response to queer spaces being razed, through the threats and closures of many queer performance spaces in London and elsewhere around the UK, such as The Royal Vauxhall Tavern (Vauxhall), The Black Cap (Camden) and Madame JoJo's (Soho).  We're a collective as we bring together people working in different aspects of the queer performance community, including performers, producers, promoters, directors, venue owners, academics and audience members in order to protect and promote queer performance for everyone.
