Papaphilia X Mossy 333, Haunting the Flesh
Haunting the Flesh is a ceremonial exploration of growing and becoming. Through multidisciplinary performance modes Papaphilia and Mossy attempt to capture the excesses of being that spill out in the daily conflict between bodily autonomy and settler notions of human civility – such as racial, sexual and gendered “purity”.
In this performance they will tell personal stories about their lived experiences as gender diverse subjects that are sexualised through lenses of femininity and associations of womanhood, and racialised through the complex visual tropes and societal structures of whiteness in Narrm.
The pair will construct an experimental sound and dance experience that sees their bodies respond to aural and political chaos, attempting endlessly to bypass the harsh realities of heteronormative authoritarianism.
