After taking the 2017 Edinburgh International Festival by storm at The National Theatre of Scotland, Adam, with music by Jocelyn Pook and directed by Cora Bissett, receives its London premiere at Battersea Arts Centre from 18 to 29 September. Adam is the true story of a young trans man from Egypt making his journey across borders and genders to find a true home in Scotland. The play features a 120-strong international digital world choir of trans individuals from across the globe.
"Jocelyn Pook's haunting score, and especially by the virtual presence of the Adam World Choir, a global digital convening of transgender and non binary people giving voice to their combined universal power"
