Nando Messias was beaten up on the street behind Toynbee Studios in an act of homophobic hatred. After years of dreaming up his response, he presents The Sissy’s Progress, a spectacle of provocation, celebration and hyperflamboyance.  

Part dance-theatre, part walking performance, The Sissy’s Progress leads its audience out onto the streets with a live marching band playing original music composed by Jordan Hunt. A veritable shock of brassy celebration and gender identity. Come and reclaim the street Sissy-style!
