Two performers navigate a complex, shifting terrain of power, submission, complicity and consent. In a single physical act, one moves from lying to standing to lying, mounted by another who never touches the floor. A short work by choreographer Joe Moran, Thirst has been shown as a performance intervention in galleries and social spaces.
