Cruising, Clubbing, Fucking: An Elegy
Cruising, Clubbing, Fucking looks at the ways gay men have met and seduce each other. Reimagining moments from New York in the 1970s, it’s an homage to a lost world of intimacies and adventures shared by a generation of gay men.
Blending bodies with beats and contemporary dance styles with gesture, the two dancers move their way through this world of late night lust, combining pursuit, seduction and moments of tenderness.
The show explores anonymous encounters, play in parks and public toilets, handkerchief flagging, and what happens after all the music has died down and all the time together has been spent.
Cruising Clubbing Fucking was commissioned by Homotopia and the Unity Theatre and funded by Arts Council England.
Additional support from the Chisenhale Dance Space and Lenita and XTG.
