Chaos Ballad

Battersea Arts Centre

Saturday 11th May 2024
18:00 - 19:00
Battersea Arts Centre, London, SW11 5TN
Pay What You Can (Recommended Price £8)*

Presented as part of Bloom 2024: a series of double-bills featuring performances developed with BAC.

Lurking somewhere between concert, cabaret and nightmare, CHAOS BALLAD bears witness to the attempts of Samir Campaign as he just keeps on keeping on going in a world filled with terror, the terror of boredom and the boredom of terror.

He rehearses and rehearses and rehearses a never-ending rehearsal for a show that will never be.

What vortex of sadness will he be sucked into now, and in turn suck you into along with him?

Samir Kennedy is a British/Algerian dance, performance and sound artist based between the UK and France. He makes interdisciplinary works across video, sound, choreography and performance which centre the body as a site from which to perform notions of class, race, otherness, queerness and abjection using archetypal figures (such as the devil, the zombie, the clown) as vehicles from the collective consciousness which drive complex readings.

This performance is a double-bill. See this show alongside Katy Baird’s Get Off by booking Pay What You Can tickets for both performances on the same evening.
