WORKING ON MY NIGHT MOVES
"The change needed is so profound that it is impossible to say. So deep that it is unimaginable. But the impossible is to come. And the unthinkable is due..."
- Paul B. Preciado - Feminism Is Not A Humanism.
Breaking the rules, the patriarchy and the time/space continuum. A search for multiple feminist futurisms, reaching for outer space, inciting a Wizard of Oz fever dream. A gesture to the impossible. An ode to the search for utopia. A science fiction / science fact / fantasy futurisms / dubstep mashup. Or just some moves in the night.
Working On My Night Moves is the latest live art work by award-winning artists Julia Croft and Nisha Madhan, two of the many minds behind hugely successful shows including Medusa, Power Ballad and If There’s Not Dancing at the Revolution, I’m Not Coming.
