Double Thrills: Marikiscrycrycry, Aniela Piasecka, Laoise, Nima Séne

Wed 29 November 2017

Double Thrills is a monthly platform from BUZZCUT supporting live art and experimental performance. Running from October 2017 - April 2018 we'll be showing radical performance practices from the UK & the rest of the world, alongside new live work in development from some of Scotland's most exciting makers, all in a super warm and friendly environment with drinks, dancing and welcoming vibes.

Aniela Piasecka's performance is limited capacity and will be performed 3 times throughout the night in the Clubroom (2nd floor). The first performance will be at 18:15 so come early if you definitely want to catch it!

Marikiscrycrycry / $elfie$
Access: limited text, song lyrics, highly visual, BSL interpreted
$elfie$ is is the third performance work in a series built around the ontologies of Black and Queer aesthetics against our current political moment.

Operating with an expanded and leaky choreographic proposition, $elfie$ reneges the imprints of the contemporary moment and places them in high-relief. In full view, it suggests another world that looks at/away from/and fiercely transverses the emotional landscapes of allostatic load (the wear and tear of the body due to repeated stress) alongside unabashed, unapologetic joyousness, the advent of political melancholia and ambivalence to extreme forms of desire and violence.

An unravelling work, $elfie$ holds the mirror to the audience and at the same time extricates itself into an existential and resistant aesthetic force–and that force says no to authoritarianisms stranglehold on our present and future aesthetics.

Marikiscrycrycry is Malik Nashad Sharpe’s choreographic project.

$elfie$ is commissioned by Fierce and The Marlborough Pub and Theatre, Brighton and supported by Arts Council England’s Grants for the Arts and Diverse Actions with additional support from Chisenhale Dance Space.

Malik will also be holding a workshop at The Workroom on 28th November - don't miss! More info: theworkroom.org.uk/opportunities/swam-a-workshop-from-marikiscrycrycry

Aniela Piasecka / Freestyle Baby
Access: limited text, song lyrics, highly visual, BSL interpreted; taking place in the Clubroom (2nd floor)
Freestyle Baby is a work in-progress bringing together spill your guts/ keep your dignity text and sickly sweet hyperactive movement.

Laoise / I gotta let you…
Access: No text, song lyrics, highly visual, BSL interpreted
"man is afraid of both sex and death. That's why they are taboos. We remain silent about these two things. We have remained silent for centuries and centuries. They are taboo subjects, they should not even be mentioned. The moment they are mentioned something starts trembling within us. "

Live music and performance work in progress, in collaboration with the Dutty Professor.

Nima Séne & Company
Access: English captioned film
For very real circumstances* we cannot show the performance but are delighted to screen former band ICHI PINKS's “Kubanerin” music video directed by Nima Séne and Daniel Hughes instead.
