Have you ever been in the same room as a zombie? Have you ever tried spice? Have you ever shared oxygen with a zombie? Have you ever wanted to fuck a zombie? Or looked at your colleagues and wanted to eat their faces off? Have you ever fucked someone who might as well have been a zombie? Have you ever loved somebody so much it made you want to die and come back to life just so you could eat their intestines?
Looks Like God is a new visceral performance installation by artist Samuel Kennedy. It appropriates the zombie body in all of its abject and grotesque glory, to seek out where revulsion and attraction coexist in a putrefied wasteland of displaced desire and hypersexual sexiness.

Thirst (2017) is a performance intervention by choreographer Joe Moran created with dancers Samuel Kennedy and Christopher Owen and first performed at Sadler's Wells, Sept 2017 and Queer Art Now, Oct 2017. Two men navigate a complex, shifting terrain of power, submission, complicity and consent. In a single physical act, one man moves from lying to standing to lying, mounted by another man who never touches the floor. Film: Reynir Hubter
On The Habit of Being Oneself by choreographer Joe Moran is an arresting dance experiment placing full-bodied dancing under the spotlight. On a stripped back stage seven dancers navigate complex choreographic puzzles through continuous, relentless dancing. Reconfiguring choreography and the dancing body, the result is a challenging and refreshingly immediate encounter with dancers and dancing.
Work in progress, touring 2017. Duet integrated with projection performed by Robert Clark, Samir Kennedy.
4 hour durational performance installation.

A durational performance installation.
The exploitation of sexual capital is common practice. It is sold to us in easy to swallow snapshots and snippets.
We want to see everything, and we want it now. We want it all to be broken down into bite-sized, sexy, consumable chunks for us to endlessly and mindlessly gorge on. I'm just joining the party.
