ABOUT

ADAM CARVERDSC_1966-Edit

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

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

Adam has also worked with numerous organisations and artists as a producer and project/events manager, and is currently the producer and programmer for Birmingham’s SHOUT Festival of Queer Arts and Culture. He believes in the re-prioritisation of midlands perspectives within national queer discourse and decentralisation of queer narratives. Adam is in the process of rediscovering his Birmingham accent, and fervently supports the use of the word BAB.

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