Deep Nyx

Deep Nyx takes the form of a fallen concert. To a constant soundtrack of drums, acoustic and distorted sounds, Nyx shifts between playing the drums and playing herself, becoming Prince and becoming a drumstick.

As the body moves between subject and object, she subjects herself to violence and abjection, sensation and sensuality. Aiming for ecstasy, yet through the constraints of self-production, every aspect of Deep Nyx was made with the hands - drums, dance, distortion. Using instruments and tools to increase impact, she aims for high intensity always, without ever reaching a readable climax. Inspired by Prince’s Baby I’m a Star, Ursula Le Guin’s sci-fi novels and Luce Irigaray’s writing.
