//a double bill of performances with Gillie Kleiman
‘There cannot be just one companion species; there have to be at least two to make one. It is in the syntax; it is in the flesh.’
Donna Haraway, The Companion Species Manifesto: Dogs, People and Significant Otherness
Familiar is a twinset of performances on significant otherness; one authored by Kleiman and performed by Wohead, the other authored by Wohead and performed by Kleiman. Woven through with references to Twin Peaks and witches, the works in Familiar play out what it means to be companions, where we think we know everything about each other whilst facing the fact that we can’t.
Familiar is currently in development.
