Using the physical properties of rope and knots, Bunny explores the boundaries of desire, trust, consent and communion.
Artists, performers and Bunny creators, Luke George and Daniel Kok, have meticulously studied ropes since 2014 – from rigging to knotting, shibari and macrame – to develop their boundary-pushing and highly awarded multidisciplinary performances and installations, which have been presented on international stages.
‘Bunny’ is a nickname given to the person being tied in rope bondage – and through this production, the artists ask ‘what if everyone (in the theatre) is a Bunny?’. Luke George and Daniel Kok look to macrame, sailors knots, Chinese knots and rope bondage to weave together an interactive and intimate experience of collectivity – with audience interaction.
Touring to 15 cities across Asia, Europe and North America, Bunny makes a return to Australia for a special season as part of Brisbane’s MELT Festival – a forward and fearless annual celebration of queer art, artists, allies and ideas will take over the galleries, theatres and dance floors of Brisbane Powerhouse from November 11–26.
