I Want This Instead (2021) 

Photography: Henrik Meng.

Celebrating our 7th home season and our first show back after being halted by the pandemic, this long-awaited new work explores themes of desire, queerness, vulnerability, and absurdity. 

What happens when we embody our authentic desires? What narratives emerge after a year of limited intimacy and togetherness?
