Tentacular Thinking, 2018

Improvised performance by Viki Browne, Bryony Gillard, Maggie Nicols, Danni Spooner and D-M Withers

As part of the exhibition A cap like water, transparent, fluid yet with definite body, Turf Projects, 2018.

 

Drawing on a number of texts exploring the collapse of psychic boundaries, speculative feminism and multi-species interactions,

a group of collaborators follow the tentacles of their own ‘jelly-fish experiences’ through movement, voice and reading exercises, improvisation and discussion.

 

Through different modes of thinking, feeling, looking and listening, the performance is a collective endeavour to explore states

‘jelly-fish’ being, unfurling into the space created by the work of writers and theorists such as Karen Barad, M. Jacqui Alexander, Donna Haraway, H.D and Elizabeth.R.Johnson.
