Plue is a bizarre kaleidoscope of colour, movement & queerness, stimulating conversations about rural LGBTQIA+ couples’ experiences of Lockdown.

Joe & Elinor are a queer couple. They spent Lockdown together in Somerset. Plue is a performance created in response to their experience and conversations they had with rural members of the LGBTQIA+ community. 

The project aims to act as a vibrant online resource for audience’s seeking to contextualise their own Lockdown experiences. Feel free to explore discussions about isolation, queer visibility & expression. 

Plue is funded by Arts Council England and supported by Arts AdminTaunton Pride, 2BU, Diversity Trust, Somerset Lesbian Network and QART.
