The(ir) Blurb...

'Deep Alamat' is a collaboration by rising stars of Sydney’s queer performance scene, Justin Shoulder and Bhenji Ra. This compelling narrative concerns two mythic figures, ‘OO’ and ‘Beige Cantrell’, drawn from the artists’ collective imaginations. Shoulder’s OO is from his series of ‘Fantastic Creatures’ that feature sculptural costumes and are animated in live performance, video and photographic works. OO’s patterns are a form of Aposematism (warning colouration). OO performs a gestural dance drawing from animal signals and queer carnival spectacle. Initially inspired by a one-hit-wonder pop star, Beige Cantrell derives from Ra’s obsession with digital failure, internet hype, software intelligence and the online secondary experience. Ra’s understanding of movement, body control and precision allows for his character to physically represent ideas of recognition software as he scans, detects and aligns his body accordingly.
