Lunatraktors

LunatraktorsAll ages

What's left when everything is taken away from us – our tools, technology and libraries, even our homes, communities and citizenship?

What's left is what we have learned by heart and we can do with our bodies: our voices, hands and feet. Using techniques from body percussion, tap dance, overtone singing and physical theatre, performance duo Lunatraktors explore a set of British, Irish and Australian ballads to rediscover folk music as a queer space of personal and political transformation.

Weaving the tragedy and comedy of these traditional tales with hypnotic acoustic percussion and harmonies, Lunatraktors create a genre-defying, "spellbinding" performance on the borders of music, theatre and live art.

Nexus

Nexus supervised

Nexus parties have been running for the last 2 years in north west England, focussing on creating an inclusive, queer-positive dancefloor in an intimate space. We lean towards cutting-edge harder flavours of techno and are now selling out regularly, welcoming UK and international guests such as Manni Dee (Perc Trax/Tresor) and Blasha and Allatt (Meat Free, Manchester) to our rave cave, as well holding down a 3-hour monthly radio show on techno.fm

Nexus residents Arondeus and Loss Function like to mix it up, playing driving techno that is acid, jacking, wonky, ravey and industrial (with the occasional disco moment), always with one eye firmly on the dancefloor. We cut our teeth dancing in clubs and parties back in the 90s through to the present day – we’re ravers first and foremost, and are as informed by the punk ethos and free party approach as by dance music culture.

We've played all round the country and are picking up some gigs abroad - and are very much looking forward to playing at QS!   See you on the floor!  www.nexustechno.co.uk

The Moon

The MoonAll ages

Puppets have special properties, the puppeteer Philippe Genty sees puppets as a prehistoric part of the mind where animism still exists:
'It's not meant to be realism, but at a certain point we reach a border, we reach something buried in the mind, prehistoric. We reach the part of us that is not fed any more because now the moon is not a goddess, there are no souls in the trees, or in the lakes. But a puppet can be that for the audience.' (Robertson,1991:59) Cardinal Woosey (A.K.A. Lucy Childs) will take her hand carved wooden string puppet on an after dark Queer Spirit walkabout celebrating the moon.

Thierry Alexandre featuring Timebomb

Thierry Alexandre featuring Timebomb adult

“Modern industrial society is a fanatical religion. We are demolishing, poisoning, destroying all life systems on the planet. We are signing IOU’s our children will not be able to pay… We are acting as if we were the last generation on the planet. Without a radical change in heart, in mind, in vision, the Earth will end up like Venus, charred and dead.” (The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche)

Rhino Requiem is a mission to engage, arouse, provoke, inspire and empower, an exercise in connecting with implications of current sixth mass extinction while celebrating the mystical beauty and sheer wonder of the natural world. It started out upon the death of Sudan, the last male northern white rhino whose disappearance shook the world and yet was feared to lead to numbness and inaction in humankind. These concerns led to the first Rhino Requiem being performed in Hampstead Heath (London, 2017) and developed into a full scale theatre show in 2018. Part requiem and part ritual, this piece takes the audience on a journey deep into the heart, exploring survival, collective grief and rebirth through visceral Butoh movement, mesmerising on stage metamorphoses, and electrifying presence.    www.thierryalexandre.com

“The stage presence (and possibly dry cleaning) of Grace Jones. Everything is indefinable and transmutable, there’s not a clear distinction point between costume and body, inside and outside, art and dance. Seeing this show is simply a joy and a privilege.

Wonderful, rich and charming piece.”
(Scotsgay Fringe Review)
