The PappyShow presents, What Do You See? at The Turnpike Gallery, Leigh.

What Do You See? is a performance weaving words, song and movement that asks us all to consider the question – when you look at someone, What Do You See?

The PappyShow have recreated What Do You See? with a cast of four local performers alongside the existing company. Believing the most diverse rooms are the richest and most likely to thrive – this work celebrates all of those identities. In a world where we have had to argue that Black Lives Matter, for disabled rights, for equal pay, against sexism, homophobia, transphobia – The PappyShow places these communities at the centre of the story and says WE SEE YOU. The PappyShow work with inclusivity, joy and bravery at the heart of their work. They work to platform marginalised voices through on-stage productions and training initiatives such as anti racism and unconscious bias training.  The two nights of What Do You See? will be held at The Turnpike Gallery in Leigh, in partnership with Moving Roots.
