Corbin Shaw's performance launch on Instagram Live

Check out "Workin' the body for labour, wokin' the body for pleasure", Corbin Shaw's latest performance piece.


"A self-reflective performance of myself dancing to music in post-industrial spaces exploring the rave movement of 1989 - 1991. Repurposed empty post-industrial spaces, like factories and warehouses, would host mass gatherings of people. In these gatherings, large crowds would dance to repetitive music and work their body. The repetitive music echoes the same repetitive work as these spaces span generations and hold the history of both work and pleasure. But from 1989, they are reclaimed as the people dance for their own pleasure, not for labour purposes."
