World Premiere


Phillip Adams BalletLab
Arts House,
Meat Market
Wed 18 - Sun 22 March

Presented by Arts House & Phillip Adams BalletLab

Four men – poof, queer, homo, fag – who also happen to be choreographers, come together to articulate how their individual and collective desires intersect with art, life and sexuality.

Phillip Adams, Matthew Day, Luke George and Rennie McDougall each make a work, perform in all works and work together on one work: Kingdom.

Penetrating each other’s artistic territories, hierarchies contested, and maps continually redrawn towards an encounter with otherness. The work of art, the choreography of work, queer literatures dismantled, streams of unconsciousness rendered, a noise choir, entanglements of orgasmic breathing, ecstatic energy, radical intimacies, a manifestation
of gold.

Concept & Curation: Phillip Adams Balletlab
Choreographers, Designers & Performers: Phillip Adams, Matthew Day, Luke George, Rennie McDougall
