Black on Black: 24R
Zinzi Minott

A durational performance that explores the artist’s engagement with dance, queerness, blackness and the body as archive. Over the span of 24 hours, Minott repeats a solo created from movement phrases donated to her by a network of black dancers and artists. The work interrogates dance as a form of labour and the limits of the body through the exhausting processes of repetition and duration.

Performances in 2022 TBA.

To Earth
Robbie Synge and Julie Cleves

To Earth considers physical acts of co-operation and a close companionship. With simple ambitions, Julie and Robbie devise novel solutions to share otherwise inaccessible time and space together. Their actions are quiet and personal, bold and adventurous.

2022 performances at BALTIC (Gateshead) in February and Bluecoat (Liverpool) in 2022 TBA.
