After wowing audiences at Experimental Dance Week Aotearoa 2020, these stunning works come to Basement. Soliloquy in Sweat offers audience members coupons to various services- cooking, cleaning, and babysitting, should the performer, Katrina Elizabeth, fail to fulfil her promise to collect half a-liter of sweat within 30-minutes by performing a series of high-intensity exercises and movement phrases. Let Them Eat Cake, by Faasu Afoa Purcell, examines the contradictory and ever-evolving idea of self and identity. "We will together explore notions of life and death and how the human form is seemingly ever present during such times." And yes, there will be cake.

Presented as part of Auckland Fringe 2021.
