Tim Spooner + Tom Richards
A strange autopsy. An opening up of things to reveal something tender inside.
In Cuteness Forensics, artists Tom Richards and Tim Spooner (The Voice of Nature, Battersea Arts Centre) embark on a visual and sonic escapade. Velvet, electronics, sponge, lead, and record players are their materials.
Objects are cut open and explored. Small things are magnified to sound huge and overwhelming. Against a wall of sound, vulnerability is exposed to find something sympathetic in material itself.
In this weird world, the internal is brought to the surface, soft tissues meet jagged edges and strange sculptures dance to offbeat rhythms.
Enter a strange and unique laboratory.
Ways To Submit
A show about dominance and submission.
The ways we give in. The ways we take control. Through our bodies. Through what we say. Through the ways we experience the world.
Internationally celebrated artist Ira Brand ("thoughtful and raw" Break Yourself, Guardian) invites you to a wrestling match, an online chat, a dance, a performance: a series of duets in which power is at work.
Ways To Submit explores what is means to play at dominance and submission. And who has the privilege to 'play'?
It is about power and how we use it when we talk, fight and f*ck.
