A series of distinctive short artists’ films exploring the ways sexuality, gender, masculinity and labour are expressed through performance and dance.
They offer a diverse range of approaches, from the highly stylised dance/movement work of Catherine Sullivan to the painfully sadomasochistic interactions of Stephen Sutcliffe’s vignettes and the fragile masculinity of Benjamin Crotty’s eponymous chauvinist.
Programmed by Benjamin Cook | Total running time 72min
