How Not to Climb a Mountain is a new performance that explores survival, ingenuity, failure, and disentanglement from systems. Partly a response to the cost-of-living crisis, and the artists’ own experience of precarity, the work also seeks to unpack what ubiquitous ‘creativity’ really means for those living and making art on the edge.
Artist Skye Gellmann’s practice explores the limits of physical performance and incorporates queerness within their work. In this project they collaborate with Lee Wilson, co-Artistic Director of Branch Nebula whose work intersects theatre, dance, sport, and street cultures. Skye and Lee’s combined range of practice encompasses rock climbing, circus, acrobatics, bush craft, knife throwing, object exploration, choreography, and dramaturgy. During they Adhocracy they will test elements of the work together, on sites, with objects, and with audiences.
