A double bill of tender new performance works about love and decay, melting and letting things dissolve.
Your Future Was Eaten By Moths – Kitty Fedorec
Queer decay, murk and muddy sequins, entropy as a positive natural force and what flowers from it. What if we stop striving to be shiny all the time? We are the disaster and the disaster taxon – the thing that will survive.
Soft Fruit Punch – Rob Hesp
Please hold me. Fall into me, until we’re nothing but pulp, seed and shining juices. All and all, todo y todo. Sweet fearless mush.
Soft fruit punchhhh.
A new intergenerational performance piece about the practice of love, intimacy and touch by Rob Hesp and collaborators. Both ritual and dance, Soft fruit punch invites you to melt. To breathe together and share deep internal vibrations. To peel back the toughened membranes of patriarchal violence and trauma and open the delicate and tender flesh underneath.
This is a piece for fathers and sons, brothers, boyfriends, sissys, uncles, grandfathers, femmes, friends, sisters and mothers.
Performed by José Tomás, Lavinia Co-op, Nicol Parkinson and Rob Hesp
Funded by the Arts Council England and public donations through kickstarter.
Future Fridays is our regular programme supporting new work led by Chisenhale Dance Members. Join us for a first look at seven projects which shun conventions and face the future of performance head-on.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Kitty Fedorec is a performer and creator, bringing together movement, live art, queercore music and noise. Her work makes spaces and experiences that reach for a place of shared catharsis through the exploration of ritualistic urges. Kitty’s practice comes from a place of unashamed queerness, neuro-divergence and mental illness.
Rob Hesp is a live artist, dancer and choreographer from Leeds. Rob is interested in the ways human beings come together, using his work to suggest alternate modes of being and feeling. His performance is constructed from a fluid queer perspective, often using viscous mess, material and object forms alongside the moving body.
