PROPS FOR THE SKY, 2012. A performance taking place over three days at SHIFT., London.
I take on the guise of a series of gods and mythical characters, using improvised costumes and props. As the performance progresses, these deities make and remake themselves, producing a series of hybrids – gods with vanity problems, gender confusion and split personalities.  The setting is an artist’s studio, providing the means for these protagonists to create new attributes and appearances for themselves, as well as referencing the idea of the studio as a pseudo-sacred space, where something miraculous or alchemical can take place. Photographs by Adam Papaphilippopoulos.

A March Towards the End of the World, 2012. An interactive performance loosely based on the Book of Revelation. The work takes the form of a pseudo-sacred procession where the audience are given crowns to wear and props to carry. They are then led on a march by the Woman Clothed in the Sun towards the apocalypse. At the end of the march I reveal an Easter egg from under my robe, smash it, and share the chocolate with the audience. Duration twenty minutes. Photographs by Jon Brichto and Judith Carlton.
