In MadDoG, we work with spo­ken text, dan­ce, and vocal work. The work wants to enme­sh vie­wers in a den­se knot’ of inter­la­ced but dis­tinct mate­ri­als and lay­ers, infor­med by a tex­ti­le prac­ti­ce of wea­ving and lace work. This work takes influ­en­ce from Gothic/​horror and hea­vy metal.

A knot can hold together con­tra­dic­ti­ons. Thinking from the knot demands an atten­ti­ve­ness to how the mate­ri­al world is under­w­rit­ten by vio­lent his­to­ries. The knot expo­ses the way dif­fe­rent mate­ri­al, his­to­ri­cal, sty­lis­tic objects are tied together, as well as the way in which power is tied into and struc­tu­res par­ti­cu­lar con­stel­la­ti­ons. Taking on a Bataillean con­cep­ti­on of base mat­ter’, MadDoG dis­rupts the dis­tinc­ti­on bet­ween high and low: the bim­bo is mate­ri­al­ly made up of the prop­he­tess, the car­pet is also dis­co ball, the body is at once dog and human, thriving is entren­ched in decline.
