Step inside a world that breaks apart traditional boundaries between science and art as we examine notions of sex and gender from the Elizabethans through to 2017. This live cinema event for students of media, arts and sciences and the general public weaves participatory performance and debate with a 25th anniversary screening of Orlando. Through theatre, film and insights from experts in biology, psychology and the history of sexuality and genetics, we explore what it means when we call ourselves ‘girl/woman’, ‘boy/man’ and those spaces in between.

Total event time: c180min.
