From the acclaimed makers of The Second Woman, Set Piece sits at the intersection of theatre, film and dance.
Loosely taking the premise of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf as its starting point, Set Piece examines intergenerational lesbian coupledom.
Genre bending and full of wit it shifts from realism to fantasy and from the clichéd to inventive, using film techniques, theatre citations, pulp fiction, interview material and improvisations to explore the reaches of queer erotic dynamics.
With saturated lighting, a cinematic score, close-up filmed images, and a lush set creating synesthetic pleasure, Set Piece is an evolving exploration of desire and intimacy.
