'Weathervanes' is a queerbodylove project which seeks a psychological break with time and space. This ritualistic experience channels focus on the living full-body sensuality of the queer/P.O.C. performers, who are raised on elevated platforms, moving through light and sound in a trancelike state. 

Evocatively constructing imaginary worlds, the performance installation tunes into the collective psyche with audiences to create a dreaming state of mind, and an architecture of queer futurity. 

Audience members are free to sit or wander around the meditative space, womblike; summoning a sense of interiority-belonging and beauty through the synaesthetic-blurring of senses. 

This radically sensuous work is brought to life and layered with mesmerising visual FX multimedia created by Cryptic artist Heather Lander, a haunting live electronic ambient soundscape, and with a new set design akin to a kind of dystopian/post-industrial garden of Eden.

This performance is a work for the feeling of Other-ness. Seeing this as possibility rather than curse, to be 'different' – it aims to create a space for feeling deep empathy between us. As a journey to the 'other side' of ourselves, 'Weathervanes' explores the idea of internal wildernesses through the collective unconscious of ritual experience.
