FUTURE GARDEN / CLUB SABOTAGE
Ève Magot, 2024
FUTURE GARDEN / CLUB SABOTAGE proposes a rewritting of the founding myth of Genesis where the act of creating the world would no longer be limited to a beginning and an end.
At the beginning everything was trans, and that was good.
From my experience as a trans woman and from the way my trans-ness rearranges the world every seven days, I will tell a genesis that would be a perpetual, collective and changing practice, a creation of the world in which to dip our hands.
Who creates you ? Who do you create ?
Is 7 days long enough to make a world ?
For whom do you make it and how ? Who would you be in this world ?
It is not always easy to create yourself. It requires desire, work, courage. Is it easier to do it together ?
Do you think we really have a choice ?
At the crossroads of the Garden of Eden and the strip club, we will build alternative and fanciful narratives of Genesis, a text that justifies a rigid and binary gender system. We will do this from our marginal and socially deviant existences, cultivating transformations of self and our worlds to survive and above all live.
To allow catharsis, but also to celebrate ourselves through the pleasure that drives life and the creation of futures for all of us. We will share love, gentleness, our struggles, our commitments to transform realities that are too violent and unjust.
These proposals to participate, physically or symbolically, will echo the difficulty of transition. To its cost in energy and resources as well as their depletion in me and on Earth.
Who can pedal to turn my tray ?
Who can read a magical text ?
Who can witness what is being built ?
Who can slow dance to spread love ?
Who wants to receive a lap dance to cultivate desire ?
Who can be the sun and make shadows tremble ?
