Perpetual Horror

An unsettling exploration of Queer Femme corporeality on the edge of horror and the sublime.

A shape-shifting 75m solo performance work by Queer Femme performance-maker Kerith Manderson-Galvin (Being Dead (Don Quixote); 186,000; The Eternity Of The World; THIS) that strays the gulf between experimental theatre and performance art.

An intimate experience spawned from body-horror films, a bodiless cover of Playboy Magazine, and Manderson-Galvin’s identity in flux – Perpetual Horror follows an uncontainable queer body through desire, disgust, disturbance, and oblivion.

“Yeah, I build bodies. I take them apart, and put them back together again.” – The Fly (1986, Film).
