tights / 1 (nonetheless still thinking)
What persuades us to do something or be something that we would not normally do or believe? What emotion does persuasion appeal to? Does fear play a leading role? Does fear have a smell?
Masked in black tights, stretched high into the rigging, Two faceless bodies, move in chic silence to an invisible set of instructions, Can they break the patterns they are set in? And how will they move once they are free?
tights / 1 (nonetheless still thinking) explores notions of identity, manipulation and choice, the struggle between our conditioned attachment to filtered realities, and our need to be free.
tights / 1... has been developed with the support of a LIFT Blue Room Residency.
