Companionship Species is a multimedia performance created at the end of my masters degree, that is centred around the cultivation  and application of radical care practices between living species, human and non human, energetically and somatically, thorough touch, noise vibration and hydration. Exploring the different forms and possibilities of / and / for relating that exist between bodies and their diverse practices and functions within a relational ecology. Exploring the affects and resonates, the accountability and consequences that events and actions have upon the other - s. Drawing upon somatic body techniques, quantum physics and BDSM, the piece explores  the queerness of nature, the development of techno cultures, the erotic's of touch and the intelligence of body photosynthesis and vibration as possible forms of communication. The piece explores how consent, participation and care can be navigated via an imagined and proposed futuristic, dystopic, queer manifesto performed and generated by a collective body of entangled beings.
