WATCHING PORN WITH MY MOM (RUBBER GHOST) is a performance about trying to break the trauma cycle by offering to watch a porn film to my mother. Dissecting the awkwardness of the moment in a poem-like story I describe how this random experience hacks the surface level mother-daughter relationship (presented metaphorically as a “rubber ghost”). The poem is illustrated by choreography in which I reenact the sex positions from the film and accompanying soundtrack made by their mouth that resembles the wet sounds of sex. Ambient de-tuned musical background accompanying the performance, as well as amplified sound of squishing rubber gloves is amplifying the suspense of the situation, suggesting an ambiguous mix of breaking a taboo, porn vocabulary, family memories and reverences of paradise like states.

TURBOCRAZY HANNOVER COMBAT is a character driven idiosyncratic queer wrestling performance by the Liminal Beast of Prey collective. It was commissioned for #youpromisedmeacity - a conference about experimental city development taking place in Hannover. Wrapped in an urban sci-fi story, where Hannover - the only habitable place in the known universe is under threat of being destroyed by "evil forces", the shoe features wrestling personas that are metaphors for local specific struggles: housing crisis, pollution, infrastructure, redistribution of wealth, etc. hyperbolised in comedy skits and combat tricks.

»Doing-Undoing« is an immersive multimedia experience by R&D, diving into the topics of labour, social projections, the body and its limits, and takes inspiration from the immediate surroundings. Members of the audience are welcomed to move through the installation, which is activated by a live performance. While visitors lurk somewhere between self-programming affirmations and blurred reality of digital labour, they dive deeper into the metaverse, consumed, hollowed out and dissected, allowing the absurdity of some types of labour come to the surface. »Doing-Undoing« explores the lifestyle fuelled by the adrenaline of workaholism and basking in the glamour of burnout, like a 21st-century Ouroboros or Sisyphos.
DOMINATURE (2021) is an online performance created for the platform From Breath to Matter. Videos with rolling credits (similar to karaoke) are shared via zoom call, displaying lyrics inspired by the concepts of vibrant matter and agency of non-human entities. Participants create an improvised polyphonic piece. With the limitations of an online encounter, it is an attempt to create a situation of embodiment through a digital interface.
