(16+) UK PREMIERE Buy tickets for the Saturday performance here Inside the room, dungeon-esque encounters and ordinary domestic lingering exercise a politic that comes with care taking, danger and amnesia.  Aughterlony and Rosenblit alongside Gutierrez and Self on sound, maintain a complicated relationship to order that encourages cracks and leaks inside architectures for gathering. A free-standing wall, a roaming kitchen island and decaying bodies are part of a disruptive ecology that needs constant adjustment. Rhythmic sorcery drives the effort despite the un-governability of ingredients. Is this a construction site or a cooking show? The room offers an expanded horizon, no longer obliged to rid oneself of the things that supposedly suspend progress. With local guest performer Emily Warner. Fierce Says: We’ve loved Simone Aughterlony ever since she presented her show Supernatural (by Simone Aughterlony, Antonija Livingstone and Hahn Rowe) at the festival in 2015 and discovering the art of Jen Rosenblit has been a highlight of the past year. When we saw this strange, immersive piece in a Berlin warehouse we knew we had to bring it. Whilst we weren't 100% sure what we'd witnessed we knew it felt it good, with a banging soundscape from Miguel Gutierrez and Colin Self too. Everything Fits In The Room is included in the Fierce Weekend Pass which can be purchased here. Teaser_Everything Fits In The Room from Simone Aughterlony on Vimeo.
