About the work: 

A club in the afternoon, after a long night out, and the fauns are still going. This choreographic process is a conversation between millennials and their predecessors. Using the ‘faun’ as a creature of becomings, transformations and halves this project explores youth subcultural politics, aesthetics and bodies. 

Choreographers: Beth Cassani and Joseph Mercier 
Performers: Holly Clemitshaw, Liam Morgan, Maddison Stevenson, Alexha Tomey-Alleyne
Sound Design: Dinah Mullen
