We are currently working on a new piece called Wild Longings. Funded by Woods Institute for the Environment this performance encounter takes place within a forest habitat.
It hails the multiplicity of ecosystems, the kinship and
camaraderie of migrant and non-migrant species, and the transgender
possibilities and potencies of plants and trees. Wild Longings invites
audiences into a sensual encounter with the environment that acknowledges death and decay whilst celebrating seduction and survival, diversity and interconnectivity.

Developed from the Live Art Development Agency’s DIY programme, and supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation, Curious are producing and editing Artist Borderpanic Compendium, a performative publication of theatrical and artistic scores that can be performed at a moment’s notice by artists and non-artists in need of creative succour and survival.

LADA Screens launch event and screening of two short films by Curious with Andrew Kötting. 

‘Landfill’, 2011
An idyllic location, a perfect spot, but something just isn't quite right, something doesn't fit. Shot on the crumbling cliffs of Beachy Head, the film plays out as a Beckettian post apocalyptic picnic.

‘Sea Swallow’d’, 2010
Charts the choppy waters of gut feelings, capturing the flotsam and jetsam of impulse, desire and fights to the death. Shot as a series of lapping and flowing, irregular chapters, which borrow their titles from Moby Dick.
