Simone Aughterlony / Antonija Livingstone / Hahn Rowe
Human and non-human actants camp for the night together on a hot pink terrain under an unblinking fluorescent sky. With axes, wood, violin, electronics and the bare body, Simone Aughterlony, Antonija Livingstone and Hahn Rowe stage a careful inquiry into some vibrant matters.
Through practicing a meditation and a choreography of reorienting the hierarchy of thinking and sensing, a fluid new rapport with the material and immaterial world is perceived and played with.
The repurposing of recognizable human behaviours engender by-product activities that may seem like dancing, and might sound like music. The vigour of the blade, the skin, the wood, the rope, the gaze, and all in our midst, buzz together lovingly in a hot debate on the political ecology of things.
