Presented by Ellie Stamp
A very early scratch of a new interactive performance from Ellie Stamp. Currently Untitled is an exploration into the gendered codes of emotional and physical strength and vulnerability. The piece explores non-binary thinking and lived experience through action, endurance, harmony, dissonance, balance and chaos. Challenging the images and constructions of gendered and societal binaries, Currently Untitled explores the complex simultaneous movement between rejection, assimilation and redefinition of these experiences.
This is an early experiment with performance, live music and video to explore a new collaborative form – an audio-visual live score.
16+ (Under-16’s to be accompanied by an adult.)
