Nico is locked down with a group of artists isolating together in an artist residency. Unable to perform her original project as no one is allowed on or off the premises, she has to come up with another to legitimise her presence at the residency, and her sex work practice as ‘art’. Together Apart explores the liminal conditions of a level five lockdown which seems to create a place beyond time, bringing new opportunities and problems to the performance of intimacy, that further blur the uneasy boundaries between fact and fiction.
The work features the talents of a largely queer collective with backgrounds in film, theatre, fine art, performance, activism, and documentary, including Loren Loubser, Kiroshan Naidoo, Gabe Gabriel, Kathleen Stephens, Nico Athene and Francis Chouler.
