Call It What It Is

Performance to Camera, recorded at Scotia Visuals

Video:  Elke Bucher

'Call It What It Is' combines video projections, pole dancing and distorted reflections in a fun house mirror. 

Made as a response to the non-consensual sharing of the nudes. (While more commonly called 'revenge porn' the title refers to calling it by the wider term Image-Based Sexual Abuse). The performance looks at the journey of healing and reoccupying a sexier versions of ourselves after abuse.

Performer, Projection Video, Editing: Kayleigh Handley

Dance Consultant: Elke Bucher

Song: 'No One Is Ever Going To Want Me' Giles Corey

Tech Assistant (Nocturnal Scratch Night): Anna Slices
