About the event
And this time with a triple bill...
Doors fling open at 7.30pm for three original works in devlopment
Elana Binysh presents I THINK IT WAS A FEELING
I think it was a feeling is a headphone show about self voyeurism, bodily functions & bodily autonomy.
It’s a set of instructions for someone to perform a show to themselves. You’ll be asked to move in the smallest ways imaginable, to rip tape with your teeth, to feel rage coursing through you, to lie face down with your eyes shut tight til you see galaxies, to dance until you lose control.
You can do it if you want to.
Elana Binysh is a live artist who makes chaotic, intimate, sensory work.
She normally works collaboratively- I think it was a feeling is her first solo project.
People say to her "Wow- I never would have thought you were Disabled!"- this is where her solo work comes from.
In search of the miracle. Filippos Tsitsopoulos
The Lecture. A stand up tragedy
"Lecture and performance, with visual objects, masks, and theatrical passages"
"It is a Lecture with masks, a live art piece with Dada elements that will be filmed"
"The subject is how to find the inner way for a miracle in a comic tragic sense, this is why I call it a stand-up Tragedy "
Ali Matthews & Company present MUSHROOM LANGUAGE: A FUNGAL GOTHIC
They eat nappies
They eat toothbrushes
They eat bombs
They eat newspapers with headlines about how the world will end…
a species running slowly in parallel
preaching change silently
digesting muck into matter and back again.
Join Ali Matthews & Company for a work-in-progress sharing of MUSHROOM LANGUAGE: A FUNGAL GOTHIC, a piece about the cycles that shape us – eruption, reproduction and decay. It’s about role-playing the lichen love stories, spore shoot-outs and truffle siren songs found in our forests. In an eerie and funny homage to folk horror, two human performers absorb and mimic ‘mushroom language’ through ritual and power dynamics. Who are these creatures, and what are the mushrooms trying to tell them? Dreamlike conversations and movement sequences are underpinned by original music from composer Hannah Miller (of the Moulettes) and playful design by Rūta Irbīte, with LX by Rob Athorn.
No one will be turned away for lack of funds get in touch if you need assistance.
