*This performance will take place as a pop up event before No-How Generator by Matthias Sperling at the Nottingham Contemporary and is included as part of the ticket for No-How Generator.

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.

‘The associations it produces are vivid violence, dependency, domination, weight, guilt, desire but the duet remains resolutely abstract, giving space for these readings to arise, mutate and complicate one another’ – Exeunt Magazine

Suitable for all.
