Searching for connection, bodies, legs, fingers, walls
Rubby Sucky is a solo work that prioritises emotional manifestations that are shamed and gendered in society such as jealousy, desperation, neediness, care. It relies on transference of touch and energies with people in the space. Working with, and taking seriously, consent, trust and intuition.
