Marion Burge | Bio

Marion is a live artist and performance maker based in London. She makes work that seeks to inspire a shift in the way we understand the emotional spaces we move through.
She pokes (lovingly) at ideas that niggle at her and from them, excavates stories and experiences. Playing and experimenting with imagery and metaphors, she extracts the micro moments from her research, blowing them up in order to open windows into new ideas and shifted perspectives. In 2016 she was selected as a Starting Blocks Artist at Camden People’s Theatre. She has made work as a solo performer and in collaboration with other artists and in addition to her creative practice, she curates and produces the experimental variety event, Piñata in London.

Nebula

Marion Burge

We take up space, but can’t find home. Nebula is an exploration and a voyage conducted by an alien searching for familiar territory.

Nebula examines the liminality of being mixed race and blends it with the idea that we are all seeking to find our place and our space. By looking outward at the human fascination with the Universe and inward at the personal desire to find one’s tribe, the work aims to articulate what it means to belong.

This show was made with the support from Camden People’s Theatre and their Starting Blocks Programme. 

OUT

Rachael Young

Created and performed with Dwayne Antony

OUT is about shape shifting in a bid to fit in; to be black enough, straight enough, Jamaican enough… 

Challenging homophobia and transphobia within Caribbean communities, OUT is a conversation between two bodies, reclaiming dancehall and celebrating queerness amongst the bittersweet scent of oranges.  

Embracing personal, political and cultural dissonance, this defiant act of self expression smashes through the silence, summoning voices and re-enacting movements in a chaotic mash-up of remembrance and reinvention.

OUT is being created with kind support from The Yard, In Between Time, Arts Council England, Curve and South East Dance.

Oranges will be peeled and juiced on stage, so this performance is not suitable for anyone who is allergic to oranges.
