since 2021 me and toi guy have been developing a joint practice which seeks to open portals of personal and collective transformations. where freedom, authenticity, queerness, co-operation and re-Worlding are valuable towards a root ambition of healing, resistance to capitalist colonial patriarchy, and reclaiming human experience. This manifests in performances, pedagogies, improvisations, music, drag/cabaret
... long may it rain
we can't keep working for little-no money so we're currently applying for arts council funding to develop our world and collaborate with more great creative humans
the dream is to develop a queer re-worlding musical show.
also we will embark soon on a
hot topical queer disjointedly heritaged
to the lesbian-capital of the UK -hebden bridge - from our home town Newcastle upon tyne
our crowdfunder: https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/p/sponsored-walk-to-hebden-bridge
we also plan to make a podcast with the support of our local community radio station slack's. it's called 'the secret third thing' which is about being not this and not that but a
secret third thing
there is so much mystery surrounding artists existing, making, surviving and we want to share our experiences in our own words in our own slow timeframe by making this podcast.
queers walk 116miles from their home in Newcastle Upon Tyne arriving to Hebden Bridge, affectionately known as "the lesbian capital of the UK", aiming to arrive at historic site Mount Cross, a monument that has been suggested to have been erected as early as the 7th Century. Jessica Lofthouse (1976) reported that a local farmer said of this stone, “Queer things happened here”
Songs and dances for our alternate-fantasy-selves realising their superfreakipowers of embodied re-worlding, quantum queerness and intra-connectivity to change the world at the speed it is already changing, without getting left behind.
It's also a chance to answer any curiosities people might have about our world and our show if they see it. we dislike the dynamics around art-speak and pressure to language things, talk about things according to the status quo.
this project is our pipe dream way of expansively continuing an existence as artists as well as our lifelong earned chance to reveal our secret third things to the audio digital world.
see you out there re-worlders
