Pulling Tongues, is an interactive performance focusing on themes of folklore, queer pleasures, and the power of gestures. The audience will be invited to observe the artist transform into a hybrid goat being amidst a bedroom dreamscape where the furniture is growing tongues and subtly transforming into creatures of their own. The audience will then be invited to learn how to pull more tongues. They will contribute their pleasure gesture tongue to the installation manifesting a tactile conversation about pleasure and play.
