MEETING OUR DARK SIDES

Come out, come out is about releasing our inner monsters & taking our dark sides on a date. Going to yoga with your rage, taking all your neediness to a tango class, bringing your lonely ghost to book club. Bringing them out into the world and seeing if you can get along nicely...

BEING TENDER WITH FEAR & SHAME

My work puts tenderness and domesticity front and centre, and so COME OUT, COME OUT will search playfully for how we connect softly with our scary parts. Dancing with them, touching them, listening to them, caring for them instead of shoving them away out of sight. We will explore ordinary community settings, the everyday world - classes, clubs, meet ups - to take our inner demons out and try to give them some company.

QUEER MONSTROSITY

Queerness and monsters have a long history. Whilst the queer and the monstrous used to be things we feared, now they're often kind of sexy - glamorised but still othered, to be looked at from a distance - but don't get too close, and don't get too real. COME OUT, COME OUT looks to embrace and get intimate with these monsters.

PREVIOUS WORK - FIND ME, FOOL

We were all hugely impressed by how you created such an immersive and transformative experience within the shell of our arch studios[…] it was at turns witty, moving, joyous and spiritually uplifting. That you were able to create such a vivid and tangible pathway both physical and imaginative through our complex felt like it opened up new possibilities for expression, but also connection […]. At the end, what struck me seeing several performances was how the audience emerged as if from a dream, returned to mundane reality with renewed energy and empathy. What it taught us is that the perception of those using the spaces could be really remarkably elevated by works with your vision and craft. I saw over and over again that on the way out, exiting the set, people seemed to have their eyes opened to possibilities.
