Fragmentary, stuttering, at the edge of words –
water drops across the page and through the body
itself host, permeable
HYG NIGHTS is, fourth time around, proud to present:
Rosie Terry Toogood – Flluuiid
Rosie Terry Toogood is a choreographer and performer based in London, and Co-Artistic Director & Co-Choreographer of Bufo Makmal Collective
Flluuiid is a dance and experience of a woman following where an open sense to fluidity of fascia and aquatic heritage can take her physically and psychologically. Flluuiid is someone deailng with the empowerment and struggles of unblocking physical tensions. Accessing vibrations in her body to open up a new life line. Flluuiid questions gender boundaries, it questions in which way we need social and land boundaries, it wants to know how life would be if we were more connected to our own tide and the sense organ: water.
Sabrina Hasan & Esme Lewis-Gartside – Us bodies, a Socio-parasitology manifesto
Sabrina Mumtaz Hasan works within the mediums of sewn sculptures, text and diagrammatic painting. Her practice is stimulated by her writings on materialising the positive aspects of a parasite, in favour for catalysing social change. Her focus is on the interruptive stage and the first act of contact made between a parasite and host coupling; as an activity which releases a productive change.
Esme Lewis-Gartside works within the sculptural practice of sound and writing to explore the upside down spaces of the [un]body, and the possibility of an andgrogenous space. She is interested in the bio-politics of a body and exploring these ephemeral landscapes with sound. Her works draws from the lure of sci fi – and the countless potential this holds for the body, more specifically the female body. Since graduating from Goldsmiths last year she has exhibited her work at LIMBOLIMBO in Peckham, and has founded an all female sound and performance collective called EARWAX.
Iris Colomb is an artist, poet, curator, and translator based in London. Throughout her practice she strives to create relationships between form and content, applying a design approach to poetic projects.
