It starts with a persistent tremor. Three women are working hard. They are using utilitarian domestic objects and a choreography of subtle shaking and relentless labour to produce moments of operatic melodrama and brooding states of dissent, quaking and eruption. What is the role or necessity of pain in personal and social change? And who pays the price? “We Are Fucked” uncovers the hard work it sometimes takes to live in a world which is not designed for you. A dance piece, both subtle and ecstatic, euphoric and unforgiving.
The live art and performance artist Jo Bannon from Bristol shows her works in the UK and Europe, works as a dramaturg and producer of performance and live art. Her work centres on a fascination for communication and encounters. In “We Are Fucked” she is on stage together with two dancers for the first time.
