Scaled the honeymoon suite   fringe image
The Honeymoon Suite a live dance, light and photography installation. Pop culture and feminine aesthetic from disparate eras collide to create a new atemporal existence, a paradoxical pit-stop of progression and regression. Are we going forward or are we falling endlessly back through time? Simultaneously satirical, slapstick and seductive, The Honeymoon Suite addresses the fragile, gossamer thin fulcrum on the seesaw of power, the point where one compromises oneself completely and utterly to eventually gain the upper hand.

Drive on down to the strange lands of vintage women's wrestling, age-old pageant queens and tacky, retro TV intros and treat yourself to our neon, time travelling dreamscape. Welcome to The Honeymoon Suite. Let's get ready to rumble.
