Everyone is briefly supended from the floor, simultaneously going up and coming down. A disappearance of the self occurs whilst suspended and our hope not to return to the ground appears    

'POOF' hypnotises itself through continually shifting its ground. Shapeshifting between fictioning, labouring and dancing, the work invokes a slippery place of (non) arrival in the body as a tool to disappear.    

Through a practice of minding and mining our presence, we attend to the periphery by putting our attention into drag. 'POOF' behaves as a mirage dancing from gesture to jump and dwells on the ephemerality of the dance whilst rhythmically reminding us of our tethers to memories and histories that we feel but don't know  

It is a work built and fuelled on notions of not naming in order to see. ‘POOF’ is a word used to describe a sudden disappearance or in British slang, it is a term to describe na effeminate homosexual
