Searching for Belinda

Searching for Belinda was a collectively devised, highly physical, psychedelic celebration of the spectrum of sexuality, focussed on the importance of honest, safe and queer friendship. Both characters are grappling with their individual queer identity. In a quagmire of doubt and projection, they struggle to confide in each other and turn to mysticism to find a common ground.

Throughout the show, movement acts as a motif for the subconscious: absurd, psychedelic, spiritual and at times deeply sensual, it gradually permeates the narrative as our characters find self-acceptance and joy.
