Marikicrycrycry: Goner

The Goner is someone who is doomed with no chance of survival—bound to death, a lost and hopeless case.

This work follows this figure on a sensuous, suspense-filled and fearsome choreographic journey into the psychological depths of the Goner’s horror. Lightly touching on the topics of abuse, Caribbean migration, alienation, belonging, addiction, and violence, Goner utilises the formal tools of solo authorship and the aesthetics of horror to create radical visual culture from a marginalised perspective, teasing out and establishing a Black tradition of horror for the live context. How do we look at culturally specific narratives against a backdrop of thrilling, bloody, and psychological horror?

Who knows, but there will be blood.

The performance will be followed by a post-show discussion, with BSL interpretation.
