Blood Makes Noise - Interactive Performance Artwork

An interactive performance artwork at Bios (arts space), Athens, Greece, 2015. Under the auspices of the Subjectivities & Feminisms Research Group, Performance Dinners No.8: The Bankorgs.

The event was brought together in response to the financial crises in Greece and the ever lengthening queues for bread in Athens. Each of the 20 artists invited responded to Donna Haraway’s “Cyborg Manifesto” with a 10 minute performance. My response focussed on performing the monstrous hysterical mother as a potential antidote to patriarchal modes of capital. Beginning with the eating a ‘heart’ and drinking ‘blood’. I wrote love letters in Greek inviting audience members to embrace and caress each other and dance together.
