Production Details

Virginia Kennard, Disssordered Deficit of Active Attention

long and unhurried and unlasting and done

it’s a feeling lonely feeling, feeling lonely
syncopated surprise, dickmatized, enraging disintegration

go bright or go home
bitch please, i’m self-cultivated

the munderscore
cross cultural competency

thoughtless kneejerk enthusiasm
well-considered dismissal

not up for debate [adversarial rhetorical spectacle of dominance and winning]
here for immersive contemplative restorative reparative mates

i will be practicing dancing to practice dance

Herald Theatre, 7pm

1 hour

Limbo/Tick, tick, tick

Review by Nicole Wilkie 02nd Dec 2020

Opening – Charles Koroneho
A state of limbo
Existing yet waiting to be born
Simultaneously both and neither
A seeking, a mourning
A beginning, an ending
An inbetween
Shifting, finding the light
Moving from night to illumination
Strength in vulnerability under the lunar

Disordered Deficit Active Attention – Virginia Kennard

Tick, tick, tick
Loop, stitch, loop, stitch
A scarf, a blanket
Colourful, repeating
Tick, tick, tick
Loop, stitch, loop, stitch
Fragmented mind, bodily autonomy
Tangled threads, empowerment
Tick, tick, tick
Loop, stitch, loop, stitch
Calming, overwhelming
A woman, a human
Tick, tick, tick
