A performance for four actors, inspired by the historical nocturnal activity of so-called link-boys*: Guttersnipes of all genders that worked as torchbearers in the early modern era. Having a reputation as being for hire, they often provided sex-work across the lines of heteronormativity. The piece employs a contemporary understanding of orientation, visibility, and solidarity, to transform the language, actions and aesthetics surrounding the link-boys* into a performative engagement with the aesthetic sociality of these pariahs.
FUCK MOON, BLESS CLOUDS was commissioned by Barbara Boninsegna & Simone Frangi for the Festival "Live Works Vol. 9", performed by Kari Leigh Rosenfeld, Tian Guoxin, Marc Norbert Hörler & Joannie Baumgärtner.
