Two women hide inside a lonely motel room on a forgotten road. Celebrating and mourning their last night together, they discuss love, sex, drugs, and the afterlife. Shifting between memory and surreal fantasy, their discussions spin into an intricate web of lust and longing, asking the question: is this the end of the world? Press play to find out.
Press Play is a savage journey into queer intimacy, magical realism, and ancient mythology. Witnessing the often misconstrued representation of queer femme bodies in performance, the work delves into these portrayals and offers a raw and honest high-voltage duet. Their dialogue, a seemingly endless game of questions and dreaming, blends with vivid imagery to create a compelling and ferocious story of love and loss. Who are they? Why have they come here? Where will they go? Step into this twilight world and maybe you, like them, will find the answers amongst the stars.
Collaboratively devised, Press Play is a world premiere from Allanah Avalon and Lucas Olscamp, co-founders of the newly founded arts collective Tooth n’ Fang. Tooth n’ Fang is a group of international artists devoted to unearthing and unleashing the raw and sharp. Blending dramaturgy, experimental design, and multidisciplinary art making, the collective produce work that is both poetic and brutal.
