DÉCALÉ X JUPITER WOODS
MANARA (Rinse FM)
HANNAH CATHERINE JONES
Décalé = 1 year! So we would like to make it more special than ever. For this reason, we are joining forces with our friends Jupiter Woods, a South East London art organisation, to co-curate an invigorating programme of live acts, screening and DJ sets that are uncompromising and forward-thinking. And we are doing it at one of our favorite venue: Ormside Projects!

marikiscrycry is the performance project of London-based choreographer and artist Malik Nashad Sharpe, born in 1992 in New York City. They make emotional choreographies that are less like descriptors of themes and more like worlds in themselves. Their work deals primarily with the social imprints and inflections left on the body, existentialism, the necessity to proliferate pro-Queer and pro-Black aesthetics under neoliberal hegemonies, choreography as an expanded formal proposition, and allostatic load.

‘When dusk arises, agitated spirits awake
A night on planet earth, Décalé
A platform for nocturnal creatures and loud existential insurgents
Disobedient children will come together and rise from the dark to encounter experimental collapsing,
flawless sounds, visuals and people. Together they will declare the unspoken, and embrace the hybrid and reactive nature of their collective experience.
Together, we rewrite reality now, against distorted norms, for an alternate tomorrow.’
Décalé’s mission is to create a safe and fun space for nocturnal creatures, in an environment animated by visuals and uncompromising sound. The collective want to break down fences and boundaries in an ever-inclusive atmosphere.
There is no tolerance for unethical, racist, homophobic, transphobic or any other abusive behaviors.
