RƎWIRE by BJ MCNEILL
19 June @ 19:00 - 20 June @ 21:3011£ – 15£
RƎWIRE is a live work that started with dance and looks at the cross sections of disidentification through interdisciplinary theatrical practice and a queer lens.
Using a rhizomatic approach RƎWIRE explores traditionalisms, while perforating and reframing them by placing them in conversation with something new, different or other.
Drawing from Hip Hop and alternative sonic landscapes RƎWIRE explores sampling – sonically and performatively, and looks at hip hop and queerness through rap, movement and object play and repurposing.
RƎWIRE explores resistance and masculinity and the body as a site of labour alongside public & private space & sex.
