Beethoven Was a Lesbian (2019), Sophie Seita + Naomi Woo

Between lecture-performance and love letter, Beethoven Was A Lesbian is an homage to Pauline Oliveros in extravagant temporal drag. Through playful dialogue, promiscuous citation, and interactive meditations, the performance seduces the tropes of classical music in order to dominate them. Performers conduct and are conducted, listen, flirt, sing, play, recline, read, die tragically, and bask in the soprano’s voice.

The performance also includes bespoke, handwritten postcards addressed to the attendees, which you can now order for a donation of £4/$4 or more below, or by emailing us at
