“The thought-provoking show — delivered with sharp wit and masterful stagecraft — is a critical reclamation.”

The ARTery

A trans cooking show with a recipe for reclamation.

After transphobic slurs—and a hamburger—are thrown at theatre artist Travis Alabanza, a newfound passion is ignited. They became obsessed with hamburgers: How they are made. How they feel and smell. How they travel through the air. How the mayonnaise feels on your skin.

Part cooking show, part exploration of an obsession, part reclaiming of an act of violence—Burgerz is like nothing you’ve seen before (and different every single performance). Carving out a place for themselves as one of the UK’s prominent trans voices, Alabanza presents a performance that is powerful, hilarious, unsettling, and timely.
