How can we make time to care for ourselves in this increasingly noisy, divided, and incessantly apocalyptic present day?
We begin with care at its most superficial. Jennifer Walshe's 'SELF-CARE' is a rip-roaring capitalist's wet-dream, a messy coagulation of yoga, self-help tapes and sequestered nature that revels in the fakery of packaged happiness. It shall be performed by premier Danish accordionist Andreas Borregaard.
What follows it a total flipside. Artist/dancer Last Yearz Interesting Negro and sound/movement artist Rowdy SS present 'Fury1' - simultaneous, responsive practices of live sonic manipulation and dance which ask the audience to be present in the moment, questioning spectacle, intimacy and boundaries in performance.
To close, Iceboy Violet presents a live set of music harnessing the aggression of grime and noise music, redistributed for vital queer catharsis.
