What does it mean to be human, in an era when our destructive influence over the planet is rapidly redefining the laws of nature? This magnetic solo performance by Justin Shoulder introduces the figure of Carrion: a post-human spectre that has the ability to shapeshift into multiple forms and speak multiple languages. In the throes of forced evolutionary acceleration, wandering an archaeological site, they transform: a ghost of the west, a virus, a trickster, a prehistoric bird. Combining presentational club spectacle with dramaturgy from Victoria Hunt on raw bodily exploration, Carrion draws on queer and bicultural ancestral mythologies.
