Mollusk Theory: Soft Bodies is a performance lecture that looks down into the ocean, finding an unlikely theoretician in the soft-bodied mollusk called cuttlefish. The performance brings together a series of fragments that situate the mollusk as master, and proposes a new discourse of language, subjecthood and love. Bycroft queers and vacates the self, making space for mollusks and their theories to emerge.

Madison Bycroft lives and works between Rotterdam and her hometown in Adelaide, Australia. She works in video, performance, sculpture, sound and text.

– Participants should be based in Beirut or able to commute to Beirut on a regular basis during the project.
