Performances'The Face to Face'by James Morgan, Esther Siddiquie and Alex Springer"They stood facing one another, both silently demanding, 'thou shalt not kill me'.In an attempt to do justice to 'the other', two bodies negotiate an impossible process of joint decision making. ~'Comebacks I thought of later'by Eleanor Sikorski“Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought” (Percy Bysshe Shelley, 1820).Sikorski takes some relatively shit experiences and turns them into great entertainment.~'Gender Bend'by Nina von der Werth"We enter the restaurant. We take a table in the corner. I move his chair back slightly so he can sit, then sit facing him".A long hard look at the gender prejudices we subject ourselves to daily.
