The Skin You're In Working title

The constant itch from within. Moisturiser. Red scales and weeping skin. Total lack of control over your body. Moisturiser. Painful showers. Blooded bedsheets. Moisturiser. Creams that make your skin worse if you stop. Moisturiser. Long sleeve shirts. Moisturiser. Acting like it's not there.

THE SKIN YOU’RE IN is a new collaborative art project, creation beginning Spring 2022. Using trapeze and acrobatic techniques blended alongside videography/projection work to bring a voice to those with skin conditions, I use my personal experience of accepting my atopic eczema to touch upon identity, acceptance, explore the beauty of skin in all its forms.

 

I feel that this creation continues to bridge the divide between fine art and circus, and feel that given the subject matter and how we approach the art form of circus, that it is important for the scene. Atopic eczema has been a part of my life since birth and hasn’t been easy to accept. From hospitalisation and a multitude of creams and ointments, certain things react drastically to my skin. I will use my personal experience to facilitate an immersive performance allowing space for personal reflection. All races, genders, ages, or creed. The beauty of skin and how the texture unites all.
Skin (HUMAN) = elephant (FAUNA) = tree bark (FLORA).
