I am currently developing a solo research, performance and activist project centred around the archetype of Dionysos and his relation to contemporary issues of queerness/otherness, intoxication, (dis)connection with nature and communality.
'Now you died and came into being, thrice blessed one, on this day.
Tell Persephone that Bakchios himself freed you.
Bull, you jumped into milk.
Ram, you fell into milk.
You have wine as your blessed honour
And below the earth there await you the same rituals as the other blessed ones.'
- Gold Burial Leaf, Pelinna in Thessaly, late fourth century BC
I have shown excerpts of work in progress at Earthly Delights (CFS Soho / The Glory), Cafe Cairo and AfterTouch at VFD (Vogue Fabrics).
