• Mauve New World

    I've been working for the last couple of weeks on a commission for Ovalhouse and Pink Fringe called Mauve New World. Three artists have been asked to produce a performance piece in response to a brief to create an alternative vision of the future. In my piece 'Midsummer' we find a reimagining of Britain where Christianity never happened, and instead the pagan religions have prevailed and developed. Within this queer people are the only ones allowed to be spiritual leaders. But if they choose to reject 'The Service' then the options are not very pretty...

    Mixing autobiography with fiction in a world where Kylie tribute acts sit comfortably alongside animal sacrifice and a wooden rabbit tells it like it is in no uncertain terms, 'Midsummer' work in progress is at Ovalhouse June 21-23.

    Here are some more production shots from the show.
