Filmmaker and artist Shu Lea Cheang presents a ‘performance as party’ with this improvised collective performance featuring selected cast and audience members, with music from Lady Vendredi.
Based on the presumptuous sci-fi scenario of the speculative forthcoming sequel film Fluidø 2
, the ICA Theatre is transformed into a hyper-playground where the gender conforming and nonbinary, chasers and chased and liberators and liberated find themselves in unexpected acts of intimacy. A selected ensemble gleaned from an open casting steal the spotlight with impro-performative-acts, manifesting the powers of intervention and resistance.
Lady Vendredi (AKA Nwando Ebizie) is a multidisciplinary artist whose work converges around performance art personas, experimental theatre, neuroscience, music and ritualistic dance in the African diaspora. Carving a unique strand of Afrofuturism, Lady Vendredi combines research into the neuroscience of perception and science fiction with a live art practice.
