Prioritising noise over silence, now over yesterday and pleasure over doing it right, this is a piece that exists in-between.

A dance, a trance, an atmosphere, i ride in colour and soft focus, no longer anywhere is an interdisciplinary landscape composed between city streets, heavy beats and personal grief.

Through small dances, video and a big sound system, LYIN moves with, against and around responsibilities of blackness and queerness, the pressure to ‘take space’ and the feeling of being possessed by other people’s fantasies.

The work features original compositions by Josh Anio Grigg, Junior XL, Nkisi, Shelley Parker and Young Nettle.
