Daniel Kok and Luke George break down traditional theatre formats to create a space more involved with connecting disparate audience from each side of a square than to create a one way relationship between performer and audience.
With a penchant for pop art colors and audiovisual techniques influenced heavily by club scenes the performers demonstrate a command of Shigari and rope bondage techniques, the performers manipulate objectification, by making mundane objects captivatingly novel novel and reducing audience members to submissive objects.
Exploring themes ranging from the disruption of conventional sexual hierarchies and the aesthetics of niche sexual practices to mindfulness and groupthink.
The whole piece could be considered a metaphorical exploration of how we are unaware of our freedom due to our feelings of being limited by the things that bind us, and that with acceptance these same limitations can be adapted to, and made beautiful in spite of these self same limitations.
With meticulous stage craft, pacing and attention to detail Kok and George are able to create a safe and trusting environment where inhibitions can be broken down in those will to engage with the process.
A sublime and uplifiting experience, do not come with an intent to remain detached from what is going on. If you participate earnestly and with abandon, you will be rewarded handsomely.
