Poignant Moment in Gay History

On Thursday 7 July the Torch Theatre welcomes a groundbreaking new production from Thomas Page Dances called A Moment.

Two performers explore what it was to be gay in the 1980s when the UK was full of fear and ignorance, in a response to Bren Gosling’s drama Moment of Grace. It is described as “an intimate duet moving through themes of paranoia, intimacy and oppression using the medium of contemporary dance”.

The piece draws parallels between the 1980s and the present day, reflecting on what has changed and the lasting impact that period has had on the LGBTQIA+ community. The work also gives thanks to those who made it possible to say “HIV is no longer a death sentence” and ensures such an important part of history is not forgotten.

Thomas Page Dances is presenting this intimate duet in the hope of sparking “a new wave of conversations around HIV/AIDS helping to raise awareness while creating a physical archive of such a vital part of our history”.

A Moment is at the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven, on 7 July at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10; £8.50 concessions. Tickets on 01646 695267 or online at www.torchtheatre.co.uk The performance is suitable for those aged 14+.
