you. you. you here. ah. that’s good.
swipe left, swipe right, what are you looking for. my place or yours.
let’s play a game. i’ll give you an address and a time. you just need to find me behind a curtained window on a city street.
this is a psycho-geographic performance-slash-installation about sex and loneliness in digital hookup culture. inspired by one of western drama’s most controversial femmes-fatales (lulu), this is a queer and feminist revisioning for the 21st century. our objects of play include costumes and sad clowns, interactive maps to trace histories of sex and grief, music videos, headphones, mood lighting and mannequins, and a nightclub confessional where your hosts ask you for 2 truths and a lie.
somewhere inside the fluctuating gap between sex and intimacy, nakedness and disguise, is the moment we meet each other, and the moment we leave each other. come to watch, do you like to watch? come to listen, we are going to confess—secrets and lies and is there even a difference is between the two?
this is all the sex we ever had. this is all the sex we never regretted. who do lulu? you do lulu?
Please note, this event takes place in our basement space is and is regrettably not wheelchair accessible.
“we are waiting for you london, with painted faces and hazy light in the basement of the theatre. we are waiting to tell you the secrets we’ve collected so far. and we are waiting for yours.” Guest blog here.
