LAAF is proud to present Eating the Copper Apple by award-winning queer poet and writer lisa luxx. It takes audiences on a journey from West Yorkshire to Syria, in a one-woman show exploring identity, culture and displacement. 

Shaped by luxx’s life, the play brings together politics, dreams, loss and fulfilment - asking the big questions about how we become who we are and exploring the intricacies of the mixed heritage experience. At once funny and philosophical, Eating the Copper Apple examines the tremendous impact of displacement on how we view our lives and identities.

Eating The Copper Apple was originally commissioned for the 2020 Liverpool Arab Arts Festival and funded through the Al-Omar Family. The work has been supported by LAAF since its inception. 

A digital version of Eating the Copper Apple by poet and writer lisa luxx will be available online. This version has been produced for audiences who prefer to enjoy the show from their homes, and includes all the show’s effects, including the visual and soundscapes that accompany the live show.

Please note: there are instances in the film where the audio does not sync with the image; this is intentional. This performance is best enjoyed using headphones.
