‘I used to live as an anomaly / no explanation biologically.’
Siblings (SOLO VERSION) is the final instalment of Colin Self’s ‘Elation’ series, a six-part opera about queer family and global transfiguration.
Inspired by the work of Donna Haraway (Cyborg Manifesto, Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene), Siblings places a non-biological family at its centre. Bonded by curiosity and caring, the characters generate ways of collectively coming together on a damaged planet.
Oscillating between heartfelt intimacy and frenzied rave, Siblings is a proposal for interdependence, critical joy and an expansive sense of being. Ecstatic voices and sounds knot to form new ideals of kinship, emerging as horizontal relations for multi-species flourishing.
Siblings is a mobile, mutable production and is performed with humour, drama and ferocity.
This is the first performance in London of this work.
