ABOUT THE WORK

Adham Faramawy will present a new live performance continuing their research into bodies, desire and queering ideas of the natural. The work will combine sound, sculpture, spoken word, dance and video and consider the different ways bodies interact with substances and with each other and when a body, behaviour, movement or interaction might be desirable and when it or they might be unwelcome.
