Carrion by Justin Shoulder at Liveworks Festival
245 Wilson Street, Eveleigh, NSW, 2015, Australia
25th October 2017 to 28th October 2017
What does it mean to be human, in an era when human's destructive influence over the planet is redefining the laws of nature? This magnetic new solo performance by Justin Shoulder introduces the figure of Carrion: a post-human spectre that has the ability to shapeshift into multiple forms and speak multiple languages. With an ego driven by nostalgia Carrion wanders an archaeological site uncovering objects. As Carrion’s journey unfolds, you glimpse startling new truths about simulation, consumption and worship in an age of excess and acceleration. Drawing on queer and ancestral mythologies, Carrion transports you into a place where the distant past collides with the far future, alerting you to the changes that already lie within yourselves.
