Survival tactics to inhabit a space
A performance set at the Courtyard Gallery where a group of queer artists could share their writings, performance and video based works related with the topic of utopic fantasy alternatives. A stage to give voice to queer artists, where they read aloud different stories of their own particular utopias, aiming to become a strong recipient of political positioning. With all the writings and images a publication was made (Reaching for the Horizon I) which was sold as a fund-raising for the new-born London LGBTQ+ Community Centre.

The ontology of materials as storytellers,
the repetitive gesture of dancing
as a survival tactic to inhabit a space,
holders of something in the state of transformation,
the poetic rythm of becoming utopia in matter.
An alternative possibility,
an encounter with a speculative ontology of materials
and their belonging in fiction.
The fantasy of something else.
The fantasy of elsewhere.
From world to world,
bodies as spaceships
to take you to another reality.
The utopic poetry of a rythmic material,
fantasy becoming a possibility.
Fantasy becoming body.
