OFRENDA

Weeks & Whitford, Ofrenda


‘Ofrenda’

This performance explores intimacy, ritual space, the role of the muse and gender. Weeks invites members of the audience into the performance to sit beside her in her bath of mulled wine for a sensual candlelit encounter where they eat chocolate, share live oysters, drink wine , smoke cigarettes and discuss being intoxicated by another, whilst Whitford circles them engaged in series of actions pertaining to feminisation and a frustrated desire to transform. Inspired by Dionysian feasts, the work presents the body as a place of ritual veneration, healing and flux.
