NIGHTCLUBBING: Rachael Young

POST PUNK / POST FEAR / POST PANIC

Rachael Young and her badass band of super-humans embrace Afrofuturism and the cult of Grace Jones in Nightclubbing; an explosive new performance bringing visceral live music and intergalactic visions to start a revolution.

1981: Grace Jones releases her landmark album Nightclubbing; her body is brown and soft.
2015: Three women are refused entry into a London nightclub; their bodies are brown and soft.

Grace Jones; a dark skinned, androgynous, Jamaican woman, transcending societal norms to become an international superstar. Then later, three young black women, discriminated against and excluded, their bodies branded; ‘undesirable’.

WE are those women, we zoom through galaxies and solar systems, traveling through time, preparing for our moment to land…IT’S NOW!

Women to the front, LGBTQ to the front, People of Colour to the front!!!

Accessibility: This performance will be BSL interpreted.

FIELDS OF GOLD: NELLY KELLY

As the countdown to doomsday arrives, Nelly Kelly offers up Theresa May’s alter ego in an explosive genderfuck drag extravaganza to tantalise the fuck out of your very eyeholes.

With no hope left for their political career, Queeresa Gay laments what life could have been had they stopped to feel the wheat beneath their feet.

FIELDS OF GOLD is a queer reimagining of what could have been had Theresa embraced a more controversial path in her actions. It is a call to arms to the deviant in us all to embrace, respect and cherish the parts of ourselves and others deemed too perverted for the public eye.

STATE OF POSSESSION: SOOJIN CHANG

State of Possession: a durational, one-on-one performance by Soojin Chang

Possession can be understood as a dissociative disorder in which there is a temporary loss of personal identity and full awareness of one’s surroundings. It must be considered through an alliance of biological, anthropological, sociological, psychopathological and experimental perspectives. Possession as a property right requires dominion and exclusive control over the object.

Soojin Chang’s practice is led by an inquiry into agency and inherited memory, explored through visual and sonic worlds that occupy a mythical sense of time. Her works are driven by examinations of personal and national trauma, familial and inherited pain, and critical reflections of agency and fertility of both humans and nonhumans. Selected exhibitions include MoMA PS1, New York; Microscope Gallery, New York; La Capela, Paris; Second Home, London; and The Art/Life Institute, Rosendale. She is currently a candidate of Glasgow School of Art’s Master of Fine Art programme.

THE SMOTHERING : THIS JAGGED POETRY OF MY HEART IS UNMISTAKABLY FALSE
MORVEN MULGREW

The Smothering is a woman with no time, two kids, a wounded salty grieving heart and a backing band mostly consisting of schoolteachers. She will present some words and music which she mostly wrote in a blind panic on the train. Don't worry, it will last only fifteen minutes.

Then she'll go back home.

Morven Mulgrew is an interdisciplinary artist based in Glasgow. Working across performance, sculpture, costume and design, she makes live work, costume and artefact concerned with the body. Interested in the homemade, the hand made, DIY and shonkiness as well as precision, shape and form, she likes abstract absurdities and grandiose gestures. She is a professional amateur and is making it up as she goes along. She has recently taken up pottery.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for BUZZCUT DOUBLE THRILLS are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
