“Lads” is a sensuous installation experimenting with the connections and influences of neo-classical sculpture in early modern dance, specifically around notions of masculinity and the ideal physical form.  As the performer moves in a meditative tantric state, he opens up a space for questions about desire and how neo-classical forms and ideologies are still in existence within our every day culture. In addition, it aims to confront how class structure plays within the homoerotic spectrum. The installation includes a movement responsive sound program designed by Montreal-based performance coder and system developer Naoto Hieda.     Supported in part by residency at  Villa Empain, Foundation Boghossian  Brussels and research at Choreographic Coding Lab Amsterdam through Naoto Hieda/ Pola Arts Foundation  Danced by: Erik Nevin and Christopher Matthews  Additional research and dramaturgical support: Janine Harrington  Photo Credits: Thomas Dupal (unless otherwise stated)
       
     
 Videography is a series looking at the body of the artist in music videos.  Currently, I am analysing the images and edits for each of Britney Spears’ dance focused music videos and replacing the images with cuts of my own body and dancing.  Reproducing the images with generic unapologetic images gives heighten context to how the body of the artist is represented.  I am interested in how the body becomes a place of labour, expression and exploitation through its different performative states.  Demonstrating how the body is represented either as an object of desire or functioning through movement.
