Slug Love by Jo Clifford
JO CLIFFORD’S Slug Love brings sex, identity, family relationships and the pitfalls of human nature into orbit around these curious, sensual, and thoughtful molluscs. Through the boundless and innocent imagination of a child, JO is able to hone in on these creatures, and begin a conversation. They speak of pleasure, patience and the limitations of language, but indicate the limitless potential for humans to slow down, open up, and be much more meaningfully together. This is juxtaposed with experiences from JO’s own life, where openness, love and togetherness have been scarce in the culture and habits of the human world.Creator/Composer/Sound Designer: Danny KrassDirected by Finn den HertogPerformed by Jo Clifford, Harry MacDonald, Reuben Joseph & Jude WilliamsOriginal music by Danny KrassEarwig has been commissioned by Tron Theatre with support from the Scottish Government’s Performing Arts Venue Relief Fund, administered by Creative Scotland.
