I Show You A Mirror
An exploration of subculture, bodies and language; how they meet, how they dislocate. How they struggle to be something, to communicate something, to hold something together. Nick tries to remember how to vogue, creating a spontaneous scrambling of moves and stories based on memories from the world-changing mainstream appropriation of a dance form that was once the coded physical language of a buried subculture. There will be a microphone, there will be a fabulous costume.There will be a sound system with a mix of relentless voguing anthems. The rest, gurl, is of the moment. It could be amazing, it could be ridiculous, it could be fierce, it could be funny; it could be all of them. I Show You a Mirror reflects the predatory relationship between subcultures and the mainstream, and the personal implications, to ask questions about language, ownership and cultural expression, and how bodies fit in with all of that.

Nick Field is a performance maker, writer and musician. His work has been produced and staged at major events and venues, and his residencies and commissions include Keats House, London Metropolitan Archives and Latitude Festival.
