New Queers on the Block: Marikiscrycrycry and Adam Frost
Home Live Art and New Queers on the Block presented two explosive new performances from young queer artists Marikiscrycrycry and Adam Frost on Friday 20 September 2019 at The Printworks Hastings.
He’s Dead by Marikiscrycrycry
This new work from prolific nonbinary choreographer and dancer Marikiscrycrycry uses different dance and choreographic techniques, as well as live action, and song to ask the question, ‘Was Tupac depressed?’
We will never know for sure because of his untimely death. So what are we left with?
SEND x43 by Adam Frost
Fusing together text, costume and music SEND x43 attempts to question the inner workings of our mind through a series of out-of-body experiences.
Sometimes you can’t stop. Overthinking.
