A multimedia fantasy on the experience of desire, shame and identification of the material queer body by Victoria Sin featuring performance by Whiskey Chow and original soundtrack by Shy One.
A View From Elsewhere stages a series of narratives from personal to scientific, drawing on research into embodiment through lip syncing, the pathologization of queer behaviour in evolutionary theory, and a story of wilful self sacrifice in an attempt to join with an other. Structured in three acts, these narratives form a heavily constructed fantasy on the often-unsettling experience of the physical within the social body.
Lighting by Cecilia Barragan, Costumes by Ingrid Krafchenko and wig styling by Naomi Fuller.
