Deep Cuts

bryan campbell

After sharing a disquietingly sexy experience with a tree, Bryan Campbell wants to share this experience with audiences of humans, and chooses to do so in the form of a song cycle – songs that are sung, shouted, or danced. Perhaps Deep Cuts is a kind of pastoral, that bucolic form that became fashionable again in the Romantic era, when the industrial revolution urgently forced the question of our exploitation of resources. Without moralising, this twenty-first century pastoral seeks to offer a moment to contemplate the violence and the erotics of our relationships to our ecosystems.

Bryan Campbell (US)

Bryan Campbell is an American artist working and living in Paris. Since 2008, he has developed a body of multi-disciplinary work that mixes image, text, and choreography, often interrogating the individual’s complex relationship to power. After studies at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts and at the the CCN de Montpellier, he created the performance Research for the quadruped protagonist (2010). After MARVELOUS (2015), a project mixing performance and publication, and SQUARE DANCE (2019), a quartet exploring libidinal geometries in social choreographies, Bryan created Janitor of Lunacy: A Filibuster (2021), a long format monologue which takes inspiration from a practice of political obstruction in the United States Senate.
