A landscape of body, moss, concrete. The landscape rests. A simmering seeks its way. Cracks condense, deform the landscape, bring it to life - destroy it. physical prospects lingers in this place of decay: in the opening interstices, it traces the violence of the Anthropocene. The choreographic dialogue between body and landscape searches for ways to endure vulnerability and rage together, manifesting a counter-design. Queer perspectives on grief and rage set their own fragility as a resistant anchor point in physical prospects. What can such resistance look like, how does it feel, how does it materialize?
