SERAFINE1369 will perform BASICTENSION, an invitation to study, contemplate, and think through our bodies.

An ongoing and unresolved project by SERAFINE1369 (previously Last Yearz Interesting Negro), BASICTENSION is a collection of dances, writing, text and sounds forming a series of studies resonating in the tensions between social, professional, psychic, spiritual, physiological, healing and technological practices and processes.

Concept, choreography, performance: SERAFINE1369
Sound: Josh Anio Grigg
Text edited from writing by: Rachel Baker, Jonathan Burrows, Rosalie Doubal, Jane Frances Dunlop, Josh Anio Grigg, Alexandrina Hemsley, Jamila Johnson-Small, Gillie Kleiman, Stephanie McMann, Sara Sassenelli

SERAFINE1369 is a London born and based artist, dancer and body-focused researcher working with dancing as a philosophical undertaking, a political project with ethical psycho-spiritual ramifications for being-in-the-world; dancing as intimate technology. They work with/in the context of the hostile architectures of the metropolis towards moments and states of transcendence. Their work is underpinned by their interest in the invisible systems and structures that choreograph bodies in life. Their work is always responsive and is shared in a range of contexts and spaces.
