In the dark, with a six-inch blade
by Urvi Vora
Having been asked to perform a piece based on ideas around manifestos, manuals, and their relationship to sexuality, I found myself lost, hesitant, and uncertain. Three years since I last performed it, and two years of a pandemic later, I would now simply like to reflect on the hesitations inherent in manifestos, and the evermore destabilising ideas of desire. And to remind myself that manifestos demand that a different world be manifested.
