The New Elementals

Schliemann-Mella Hall

Ayesha Tan Jones performs an energy specific decomposition ritual. Sculpting local clay through movement, responding to the fluidity of water; sound, vocals and their body, they will (de)compose a semi improvised audio visual experience. In this site-specific sci-fi queer Greek opera, Tan-Jones directs their characters through the scenes that explore their own trans/non‑binary identity through eco-fetish mythologies and into a fictional pop idol bootcamp with near apocalyptic aftermaths. They take the viewers on a journey through soul space, exploring the elements of “optimystic dystopia” in the Athenian landscape.
