New Worlds: Rituals for an Optimistic Dystopia

Thu 07 Jul
Lancaster Rooms
New Wing

Bones Tan Jones proposes visions for an alternative, optimistic dystopia.

Traversing pop music, sculpture, alter-egos, digital image and video work, Bones Tan Jones’ expansive practice proposes visions for an alternative, queer, optimistic dystopia. When we shed the inherited belief of a utopia-dystopia binary, what other worlds can enter our collective consciousness?

In this event, Bones invites the audience into a collaboratively-nurtured ritual environment to speculate on new forms of survival within a perpetually dystopian world.
