Bo(ix)y(e) Division- Such Creatures
Thursday 7:30-8:30, Friday 9:30-10:30
Bo(ix)y(e) Division is a contemporary movement work involving 2 dancers recounting and re-experiencing physical & neurological evolutions related to their trans-masculine identities. This is a show you were not meant to view, and yet here we are. Bo(ix)y(e) Division exposes the intricate practice of controlled, curated metamorphosis, the witnessing of which places audiences in an intimate relationship with concepts often boiled down to digestible nuggets at the expense of the TGNC community or extracted without consent or context.
Formed in 2020, Such Creatures supports the collective investigations of Ashaand Simone and Luke Greeff, two Trans & Gender Non-Conforming movement artists invested in the exploration of inherent energetic systems, expanding the narrative surrounding queer and trans bodies in the process. The work of Such Creatures can be defined by the phrase: “Trans Audacity.”
