Event Details

Emilyn Claid, queer dance artist in her 7th decade, presents At The Brink, a work-in-progress solo performance.

Following a 20-year break from performing, Emilyn has invited choreographers Heidi Rustgaard, Florence Peake and Joseph Mercier to collaborate with her to create vignettes, drawing Emilyn’s past experience as a performer, choreographer and therapist into play with current concerns of ‘presence’ in live art-dance performance.

In this intimate and informal showing Emilyn will use movement, text and visual image to show ideas in process, followed by a talk with the audience. Between clay foot and monster, therapist and mannequin, excess and erotic, Emilyn playfully embodies queering and ageing, teasing at perceptions of what’s real and what’s imagined.


This is a pay as you feel event. All pay as you feel donations are invested back into future festivals.
