Tony-nominated New York cabaret icon Mx Justin Vivian Bond returns to Sydney for one night only in Justin Vivian Bond is Mx America. This brand new show will include original music from Bond’s critically acclaimed debut album Dendrophile plus reinterpretations of songs by Tracy Chapman, Kate Bush and Brecht/Weill.
Mx Justin Vivian Bond is a writer, singer, performance artist and author of the award-winning memoir Tango: My Childhood, Backwards and in High Heels. The book sparked a national discussion about gender fluidity and growing up trans in America. Having added the name Vivian and self-applied the trans prefix Mx. (instead of Mr. or Ms.) and trans pronoun “v” (instead of he or she), Bond has persuaded such mainstream media as The New York Times and The Economist to follow suit. It is not an overstatement to say that Bond has become one of the foremost spokespeople for the trans experience. Presented by Carriageworks, Hyam, Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras and Hyam, Horne & Hall.
