Christopher Matthews
Lads Installation

Christopher Matthews presents live dance, sound and Instagram occupy project Lads in Leake Street Tunnel. The project draws on dance and art histories to explore idealised physical form, class structure and notions of masculinity, particularly in the homoerotic spectrum. Audiences are invited to interact with the project using #lads on Instagram to post photos and videos of the work. Within a stream of images bearing the hashtag “lads”, a temporal project archive will be built, reinforcing and colliding with this surrounding content.

Performed by Jessica Cooke, Andrew Graham, Samuel Kennedy, Samuel Ozouf.

Sound design by Naoto Hieda, Dramaturgy Martin Hargreaves, Janine Harrington.

Production assistant Eleanor Chownsmith.

Costumes by Commune East.

Supported by Sadler’s Wells, South East Dance and Jerwood Charitable Foundation Dramaturg in Residence programme, Villa Empain, University of Winchester and Arts Council England
