I am undertaking a residency at The Work Room to develop the choreographic aspect of my project Deer Dancer. This is a cross-artform project investigating deer mimesis within traditional dance, exploring how imitation of stag behaviour constructs 'wilderness' as the site for the cultivation of hetero-masculinity. Transcending human:animal and male:female binaries, the project is informed by eco-queer methodologies, posthuman-philosophies and those seeking solutions to environmental crisis. Realised as an audiovisual installation in 2019, incorporating music, costumed choreography, film, and visual scores, Deer Dancer will be developed for live performance in 2020.
