Photo by Manuel Vason

6pm. £10/£8 concessions. Contains nudity. Part of Bodies in the Way, a day-long programme of discussion, film and performance.

We live in the Anthropocene: a geological era testifying to the permanent impact human activity has had on the planet. Micro-plastics contaminate waterways, oceans, bodies and have even been fossilised, leaving remnants for future generations to discover.

FISHY is a visually mesmerizing post-punk performance. Edythe uses the grotesque to create a dreamy turned nightmarish queer underworld that explores the altered ecosystems of our impending future. Here, the old-world slips and collides with the industrial pop Anthropocene.

Described as “Surreal and sassy as fuck” (Great SEXpectations) Edythe is an interdiciplinary performance artist who confuses the glamorous and the grotesque creating dreamlike, visceral and playfully political performances that foreground queer feminist narratives.

This work is highly visual and therefore suitable for D/deaf audiences. You can let us know your access requirements ahead of time by emailing
