Adam Headshot - @emwajones-14

I am a theatre-maker, creative producer, and designer working in the midlands. My practice is primarily concerned with exploring otherness and navigating the queer experience.

I trained in Directing, specialising in queer performance, at the University of Birmingham after graduating from Royal Holloway, University of London. I make experiential commercial performance work and am particularly interested in the integration of sound, voice & music in live performance.

I have worked with numerous organisations and artists as a producer and project/events manager, and am currently the producer and programmer for Birmingham’s SHOUT Festival of Queer Arts and Culture. I believe in the re-prioritisation of midlands perspectives within national queer discourse and decentralisation of queer narratives. I am in the process of rediscovering my Birmingham accent, and fervently support the use of the word BAB.

My research interests include deconstructing camp, the phenomenologies of queer fandom, queer identification in musical theatre, and regional perspectives within queerness.
