SLUG HORIZONS / KNEADING PARADISE
Florence Peake and Eve Stainton's on-going project Slug Horizons explores the expressive potentialities of queer bodies through intimacy, touch and collective reclaiming. Promoting an emotional landscape of bravery in response to restrictive attitudes to the sensual and visceral body, Slug Horizons elevates the marginalised affection, sexuality, power and energies within non-normative relationships.
Using the work as a metaphor for non-monogamy, they pull on the absurd management of their relationship. A continuous physical and psychological negotiation unfolds to transverse complex relational terrain.
The duet Slug Horizons is being developed into an expansive body of work, Kneading Paradise, to include a group performance work, workshops, talks, queer lesbian focused club night.
Resisting hypothetical, futuristic longings, a liberated future lands now in our bodies. The present is kneading.
