Part of Dance International Glasgow 

UK PREMIERE

This durational performance begins at a location outside Tramway - details to be announced 

Can resistance be choreographed? This is the question that drives pushit!!, a site-responsive performance by the New York–based artist NIC Kay. 

pushit!!, is a performative meditation on emotional labor and the impossibility of the stage as a place of freedom for the Black performer. This work is part of a larger set of exercises in getting-well-soon.

NIC Kay makes performance, installation, and publications. Their work choreographically highlights and meditates on Black life in relationship to space, social structures, and architecture through centering embodied practices. They are deeply invested in the act and process of moving, the change of place, production of space, position, and the clarity gained from shifting of perspective.

Full performance viewing requires walking outdoors for approximately 2 miles / 60 mins to 1.5 hours. Performance continues and ends in the Tramway building.
