Seduction is a drive-in/drive-by performance of excruciating intimacy set in a landscape of bleak urban grandeur.
It is about friendship. About sex. And bodies. And how women who aren’t dancers dance. It’s about reverse parking. Falling over in carparks. Tinder dates. Believing you’ll never have sex (with another person) again. Silence.
But maybe it’s just about seeing a woman in the middle of a carpark and wondering. Who the hell are you?
Two women navigate the world, the violence of making performance and the seduction of art, friendship, and how their feminisms are different and the same.
