NOHOMO – Dan Brown

Thu 30 May 17:30-18:20 / 20:00-20:50

Dan Brown worked with Imaginate last year as a Launchpad artist to develop NOHOMO, a new dance work in progress that follows a lone astronaut lost in a deep bubblegum space trying desperately to find their own space – a place to call home, to feel like they belong. Dan worked with pupils at Tynecastle High School on the themes of masculinity, and to explore the topics of the show.

Drawing from his own autobiography as a young queer, working class person who has had to manoeuvre different spaces in order to survive and pass, NOHOMO is a space exposé of the patriarchal constraints placed on young queer working class people and how that shapes a person into finding their space.

Lead Artist – Dan Brown
Costume Designer – Alison Brown
Dramaturg – Emma Lewis-Jones
Video advisory – Jamie Wardrop
Producer – Isabel Sharman

Dan Brown makes work that exists in dance, contemporary performance and film and utilises persona and popular iconography to contextualise meaning and mediate his own autobiography, opening up the micro to relate to the macro. His work is campy, queer and guaranteed to have a banging soundtrack.  He uses film and video art within his practice as he is interested in how the content of his work can be mediated through digital technology and how video art projection can blend the worlds of film and performance together.

To attend this performance you must register as a delegate with the Edinburgh International Children’s Festival here.

These two works in progress will give delegates a chance to see exciting new ideas being developed for children by Scottish-based performance makers.
