Singular

Set within an audio-visual installation, the piece entitled ‘Singular’ is a multi-disciplinary performance combining dance, poetry, painting and originally composed music.

Framed within a narrative arch proposing a transition from the individual subject to the collective, two performers use spoken word and movement to interrogate and dismantle normative stereotypes on gender and class relations that pervade contemporary Western society. 

Highlighting rituals and traditions which underpin socio-cultural conventions, such as religion, public trust in government and blind reliance on the financial system, the performers seek to deconstruct the roles forcibly assigned at birth to each individual according to their background, a series of superstructures which limit the aspirations and the free expression of any human being.
