Monster and Labels Bristol Wardrobe Theatre

Monster and Labels Bristol:

Joe Sellman-Leava, will be bringing two one-person stage productions to the Wardrobe Theatre in Bristol, in the new year.

Monster and Labels will be running at The Wardrobe Theatre in The Old Market Assembly from Tuesday 21 January – Friday 24 January 2020.

Monster examines associations between violence and masculinity, asking why some men become monsters. It uses a play within a play format to explores aggression within relationships and scrutinises the place of the male role model in society.

Labels looks at how language can dehumanise people by drawing on Sellman-Leava’s experiences of being mixed-heritage. It discusses displacement in Britain, racism and immigration.

“When Labels was first made and performed, conversations and events around ethnicity, migration and displacement were already volatile, ” Sellman-Leava says.

“It has been both sad and scary to see the show become increasingly relevant as we’ve toured it around the world. But I still hope it leaves people feeling uplifted: whilst bittersweet, it is ultimately a hopeful story.”
