TYPE: TELPEHONE (LIVE 1 ON 1)
1-800-LONGING4IT is a late-night, 1 on 1 live performance held over the phone. In a time when disembodied intimacy and loneliness soar across our present into the foreseeable, this work appropriates the format of phone sex hotlines and personal ads in one-on-one night time performances. The encounters comprise of fictional fantasies that serve to queer normative power roles, to prioritise care, pleasure and dreaming, to momentarily release performer and audience from reality.
Problematising how virtual connection and female bodies are consumed, suspended within the imaginative space between two bodies. In collaboration with Leah Marojevic, a contemporary dance artist who performs, makes performance, writes, teaches, directs and artistically supports other dance makers.
