let’s meet in the flesh
for a slippery-womb-howling-punk-prayer-dance
riding the waves of a hot flush poem
empire is falling & we are the tumbling stones
skin to skin
invoking our queer, femi-divine selves
This performance is Part 2 of a project that began over three years ago: S/HE (Part 1) was a live Zoom show presented online in June 2022. It was the long-distance meeting between two friends attempting to capture the intimacy of their human encounters through digital frames.
Now it’s time for Part 2: into Flesh, when the artists finally meet in person. Playful and vulnerable, this performance is a physical space where they can reveal and transform, tapping into and enjoying each other's live presence as they negotiate life’s ever-shifting terrain.
Skye is a Scottish-based, kooky perimenopausal, single feminist mum and Kham is an inquisitive, quirky-queer husband from Laos who’s ended up in Malmö. The pair met in a sushi bar in Düsseldorf and first collaborated in 2012. They always said they’d like to work together again. This is it - their meeting in the flesh.
