By the Bi
Winner of the Doric Wilson Award for Intercultural Dialogue
International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival 2015
Told through a series of fifteen vignettes utilizing a mixture of dance, music, and spoken word, By the Bi addresses how society’s views and isolation of bisexual culture contributes to perpetuating harmful bisexual stereotypes of greediness, promiscuity, and confusion. It also brings to light the alarmingly high statistic rates of suicide, domestic violence, sexual assault, and rape that too often become a reality for many bisexual young adults due to society’s perception of their sexuality.
By the Bi is not only a show but a proactive step towards revolutionary social change. It gives a voice to a voiceless community and sheds light on issues of not only bisexual inequality but of human inequality.
"There is an integrity in this pleasing production that deserves audiences of all ages and persuasions. Is the B silent in LGBT? It no longer is in “By the Bi”. Worth seeing." - AO'B, Dublin 2015
