gyrl grip

  • gyrl gripgyrl grip is the intimate live art collaboration of Llewyn Máire and Lisa Newman (often joined by other collaborators), founded in 2001

Using video, movement, spoken word, sound sculpture, conceptual and text-based performance, endurance, and experimental music, the gyrl grip explores new possibilities of communicating what is incommunicable.

The themes of the work deal with: issues of oppression, the politics of identity and the influence of power, loss of culture through assimilation, hybridization of cultures out of the need for survival, political and sexual resistance and exploitation, obsession and divinity.
