Synopsis
beneath the synthetic terf, we’re looking at deep time baby. this is a ritual for QUEER SURVIVAL, a stagger thru eco + gender anxiety, via ancient norse sex magic

an anthropocene queen rises from a polluted wasteland + the earth groans, hooked on an iv drip they told us was JUST high pressure water + its skin cracks and breaks + that genderquake was a 6.8 on the richter scale + im tired + scared + lonely

this is ritual for transformation, and survival

reimagining the ancient nordic practice of seiðr [think queer viking sex magick] as a contemporary rite, with a fresh dronescape by nat norland, here comes the sun is an attempt to work thru eco + gender anxieties + construct new histories + imagine a different future + queer the apocalypse

supported by ]performance s p a c e[ + mother's ruin + arts council england + pilot nights. videos available on request.
