Need Cooling? (2020)
While unpacking their transitory identities four performers (and a boombox) compose a chaotically controlled collage of cool. Abandon yourself to the sensorial experience of idiosyncratic expressivity, allow for the appropriately inappropriate hysteria, and relish in the blurring of comfort and honesty. Throw in cheeky winks, Welsh accents, muddled seductions, and grumpy teenager technique. Do you Need Cooling?
The coolest research ever.
Unrivalled in its coolness
