LAST NIGHT A TRASH BIN SAVED MY LIFE

The piece explores the intersections between queerness and trashiness as aesthetics that emerge from the margins. By deriving movement from objects and the idea of waste, we are going to indulge in the queer art of failure. Failing to comply with what is expected of us, breaking chains, like literal trash we find liberation in shedding meaning, disintegrating and mutating into every imaginable colour and form that exists out there. Get ready for some TWISTER baby!

 

Performed by Saskia Faye Larcombe, Anouk Jouanne, Hannah Grace, Ghazal Seidi and angel dust​

IN MY BONES

 

In My Bones explores the process of reconnecting to our ancestral roots through song, movement and cooking. Inspired by the way sound vibrations facilitate bone growth, the group explores listening to sound vibrations in their bone tissues, and allowing the activation of their senses to reconnect them to their lineage.

STREET ME FREE

We are the embodied unsettling surroundings. 

We are the containers that carry the absorbed emotions of the streets. 

We are the city exteriorization. 

We are everyone's inattentiveness and everyone's attention.

THE HAND THAT FEEDS
 

The hand that feeds is something of an inner dialogue- a physical mind map of internal conversations and feelings. It reflects the complex and often turbulent relationships we have to ourselves, exploring the thin dividing line between self-love and self-sabotage.

Performed by Justine Prignot and Laurie Case

Music composed by Zacharias Wolfe

THE STOLEN_____

The body is always being ravaged and bewitched by power discourses of various groups/individuals, history/present, positive/negative, sexuality/gender, etc.  This is an experiment in which the "body" is used to resecure the "body",  a subjective returning movement around the "body".
