Here Comes The Sun


2019




beneath the synthetic terf, we’re looking at deep time baby. this is a QUEER MYTH OF THE ANTHROPOCENE, a stagger thru eco and gender anxiety, a collision of non-binary identity, climate catastrophe and the political potential of excess.

an anthropocene queen rises from a polluted wasteland + the earth groans, hooked on an iv drip they told us was JUST high pressure water + its skin cracks and breaks + that genderquake was a 6.8 on the richter scale + im tired + scared + lonely

this is myth is of transformation, and survival

imagined as a contemporary rite, co-written with Es Morgan and featuring a fresh dronescape by Nat Norland, Here Comes The Sunis an attempt to work thru eco + gender anxieties + construct new histories + imagine a different future + queer the apocalypse.

A publication of the text of Here Comes The Sun is forthcoming, published by ]performance s p a c e[.
