FakeKnot Studio Showing

whip

whip is a duet performed entirely in leather hoods, leaving performers blind for the duration of the performance. Inspired by the virtuosic head-whip motion found in a multitude of dance forms, the duality of the leather being both soft/hard is revealed through the work. Bodies explore images of consent through a range of physical touch, with the support of interactive new media light and originally composed sound design. This online showing will share excerpts of work in progress and a conversation with the artists moderated by Lee Su-Feh.
