BE MY EMBRACE NOW
Performances of the work -
2021: Manchester Pride
2019:Manchester International Festival: Festival Square
curated by Greg Thorpe
Be My Embrace Now is an outdoor gender bending, radical performance in the form of a mass Fabaoke and audience choreography.
It combines live singing and DJ’ing
from TomYumSim, audience singalong and larger than life hands.
As we move from restriction to lockdown, from lockdown to isolation, from isolation to restriction, we are in a seeming cycle of distance. TomYumSim
have missed during this time is physical contact and a community of queer events where the power of touch brings people together.
How do we "Touch" one another after so long?
How does Touch inform our community?
Be My Embrace Now is a high energy, celebratory performance encouraging people
to get communal (as far as government regulations allow).
Join TomYumSim as we guide your through an absurd and radical release ritual.
