after the storm...

And after the storm

I went down to the basement

And everything was floating

Lots of my old keyboards

Thirty projectors Props from old performances

A fibreglass window

A motorcycle Countless papers

And books

And I looked at them floating there in the shiny dark water

Dissolving All the things I’d carefully saved all my life Becoming nothing

But junk

And I thought

How beautiful

How magic

How Catastrophic

Kindred & Judd Collective

 A duet conceived through the journeys of motherhood between two women. In a dialogue between movement, music and spoken word the performers reveal the vulnerability of their realities in the light of the ever-present perceived reality of social media. Through sound and gesture, humour and narrative their stories are explored and unpacked. aGender opens questions of how the social and cultural aspects of our lives shape our bodies, how our bodies are our lives, grounded in beauty, swimming through vulnerability.

(in the stillness of) whispers

A solo performance installation exploring narratives of the body in relation to text, touch and through an interpretation of real and imagined spaces. Through film (in collaboration with Dominique Rivoal), (in the stillness of) whispers responds to interruptions of the body-space through improvised performance. The work questions the body-self's relationship to ever shifting environments, moving in the between-ness of past and present.
