Mineral Language

In summer 2021 I was invited to be guest choreographer/composer and create a new piece at the Accademia Nazionale di Danza in Rome. I was fortunate to collaborate with many talented and kind people in the making of this piece, Mineral Language, which was launched online last night. The piece is about language as a mineral that contains layers and layers of historical development - sound and graphic elements, meaning, the ability or inability to communicate, creation of community through stories and fairytales, and movement as a language in its own right. Here is the video of the piece, and also a 'making of...' video!

 

Wise Thoughts' series ACTivate: Our Future - Guy XY

The two pieces in this video are an exploration of the queer experience in lockdown, through a lens of intersubjectivity.. The exploration looks at the flux between inside and outside in relation to space, queer identities and the breath. It also imagines a utopian vision of community and family.

The pieces were inspired by the Wise Thoughts / Niranjan Kamatkar’s interviews with members of the queer community as part of GFest 2021. Many thanks to Wise Thoughts for initiating, guiding and supporting this project, to the members of Wisethoughts’ discussion group and to Andra Simons for valuable feedback as the project was developing.

DREAMTIME

Here is an edit from a live performance which was streamed live from Gallery46 on 25 June 2020. It is a reflection on the solitude and dreamtime of lockdown. Part of the series Liminality [Start Dreaming] - curated by Kevin Quigley, Bjørn Hatleskog, Sean McLusky, Johny Brown and Martin J Tickner.

I was honoured to be featured on Jose Macabra's radio programme on Resonance Extra, in which he created a creative two hour mix of my works spanning the last two decades. 

TURING CABARET

Turing Cabaret, created under the moniker Guy XY, is an album about computer scientist and pioneer Alan Turing. Lots of thanks to all the musicians, artists, organisations, friends and family that have helped make this happen. I love you all. 

You can stream and purchase on this link: https://guyxy.bandcamp.com/album/turing-cabaret

£2 of each album sale will go to the LGBT+ anti-violence charity Galop who are doing very important work. Considering the violence and persecution that Turing faced, this seemed like the right choice.
