PRESENTED AT A SECRET MKA VENUE
An unsettling exploration of Queer Femme corporeality on the edge of horror and the sublime.
A new solo work by Queer Femme performance-maker Kerith Manderson-Galvin (Being Dead (Don Quixote); 186,000; The Eternity Of The World; THIS) that strays the gulf between experimental theatre and performance art.
An intimate experience spawned from body-horror films, a bodiless cover of Playboy Magazine, and Manderson-Galvin’s identity in flux – Perpetual Horror follows an uncontainable queer body through desire, disgust, disturbance, and oblivion.
“Yeah, I build bodies. I take them apart, and put them back together again.” – The Fly (1986, Film).
About Unofficial Kerith Fan Club
Kerith Manderson-Galvin creates unconventional works of theatre and performance art. Their work explores Queer femininity and radically soft performance that plays with time, reality and feelings. The performances imagine a Queer Femme performance aesthetic – they can be gentle, fragile, wild, emotional and imposing. Kerith has performed across Australia at venues and festivals including: Rising, Provocare, Dark Mofo, PICA and RCC.
