Hot Body is a poetic performance text exploring touch, intimacy, desire and embodied power in fictional and virtual spaces.
Grace Marlow is an early career, multidisciplinary artist working in text-based performances and poetry to inform a practice of quiet interruption. Their writing is informed by confessional poetry, memoir and autobiography as modes of queer self-becoming. They question value systems through quiet gestures that subvert artistic labour and patriarchal structures. They are interested in how poetry can disrupt how we see, hear and feel.
Working with mentors, artists Madison Bycroft and Monte Masi, Grace is developing their original poetic text into a solo performance that actualises the text’s themes of touch and intimacy.
