About Eve Stainton
Eve Stainton is an artist interested in the politics of uncodeable queer presence and its intersections with race and class. They create multidisciplinary performance worlds that hold movement practices, digital collage and welded steel, and other invisible forces like waves, imagination and drama. These forms work together to create live ecologies that are discordant, multilayered and psychedelic. Stainton is interested in the production of conflicting states and textures to unravel essentialist thinking, with the intent to create more expansive understandings of the lesbian identity, non-gender/variance, and perceptions of the ‘real’.
During their time at Wysing, Stainton has been researching how movement, live welding and live sound can come together choreographically under a new performance project, Impact Driver. Impact Driver is interested in methodologies for constructing thriller-like suspense. How suspense can be sustained as the main event in the absence of a climax or traditional resolve. Haunting, time stretching, absurdist. Foregrounding the gender non-conforming masc experience. Involving a cast of performers from different creative backgrounds Tink Flaherty, Leisha Thomas, Imani Mason Jordan, Romeo Roxman Gat and Eve Stainton, with sound world contributions from Mica Levi and Leisha Thomas.
