Luke George & Daniel Kok. BUNNY

Location:
TQW Halle G

Luke George and Daniel Kok exploit the physical properties of ropes and knots to unpick the boundaries of desire, trust, consent and communion between artist and audience. In order to unravel shared lines of connection, to suspend tension and to unleash collective desires, Daniel and Luke look to macramé, sailors’ knots, Chinese knots and rope bondage to weave together an interactive experience of collectivity.

“Our investigations into ropes have led us to appreciate the physical properties of ropes, the aesthetics of knots, and the precariousness of the relationship between bodies when connected and bound by rope. More importantly, we were both interested to know how working with a rope could help us rediscover our respective physical practices in dance. As we move with our ropes, we hope to make visible multiple lines of tension and friction, to arrive at a heightened shared experience, and a greater awareness of what it means to be in communion.”

“Bunny” is a nickname given to a person being tied in rope bondage. Conventionally, the bunny is a submissive female of petite stature, while the rigger (the person doing the tying) is usually a dominant heterosexual male. We are not interested in the clichés of BDSM but seek alternative ways of relating and performing by “queering” rope play. In this work, we wish to reconfigure the aesthetics and sexual politics in the power play of bondage. Simply put, we ask ourselves the following question: “What if everyone (in the theatre) is a bunny?”
