The tremble, the symptom, the swell and the hole together
20 January – 12 March 2017
"The work traces queer affinities across social practices, art forms and timeframes, in which bodies simultaneously experience pleasure and deficit. Here, dance, gesture, sound and spoken word contribute to an embodied vocabulary through which the performers navigate intimate and fragmentary exchanges, reflecting on the edges of subjectivity, corporeality and representation..
This commission develops Baczynski-Jenkins’ interest in negotiations of desire and the materiality of gestures, as well as the stagings and affections of queer commons. The tremble, the symptom, the swell and the hole together is developed in collaboration with and performed by Magdalena Chowaniec, Jia-Yu Corti, Kobe Darko, Jonathan Gonzalez, Samuel Kennedy, Matthew Morris, Jayson Patterson and Thelma Sharma."
