Vikki Stone – Instrumental

With a comedy brain that leaps from stimulating arguments onto abstract confabulation with lumpy doses of openness, honesty and earnestness, Sara shares her romantic history, existential theory and cultural insights.

The past contains wars, witches, Kim Yong-Il and your ex. Your brain can recall being a child, while your body remembers being a monkey. Everything that has happened shapes who we are today…

‘Always clever and sometimes exquisite’  Independent

Lady Fingers & Empire Biscuits

ROSANA CADE presents
A performance exploring the historic relationship between Britain and India and the sexual legacy of colonialism.

In 1860 the British ruling force in India instated the Indian Penal Code, enforcing a unifying law across the whole country for the first time. Section 377 of the IPC stated that carnal intercourse against the order of nature was illegal. Since then, this law has been used to persecute people who engage in homosexual acts. Previous to British rule in India, there are no records of any person being persecuted for acts of same-sex love. There isn’t a word in any Indian language that defines people by their sexuality.

In Lady Fingers & Empire Biscuits, Rosana Cade explores this export of British Victorian ideas about sex and how they have permeated through time; the confusion between modern and traditional notions of identity in each country; and the impact of the English language on sexual discourse in India.

Rosana Cade is an artist based in Glasgow whose work and research is rooted in a queer discourse. She travelled to India to collaborate with local video artist Afrah Shafiq and interview queer people in Mumbai and Dehli as part of this process.

Creative Team:
Director & Design: Josh Armstrong
Performers: Astrid Quartet

String quartet, three performers, projected visuals, and bold, vibrant design will make this performance a sumptuous exploration of creation, destruction, absence, and longing.

Through physical manipulation of body and objects, tableaux and moving images are constructed, crossing the boundary between theatre, dance, live music, visual art and film.

“I was inventing a language for people to see the everyday things that I also see… and show them something different…” Francesca Woodman
