  1. to come or go into a place…



  1. to discharge slowly and steadily…

Enter Exude is a show for three persons and a Chevrolet Camaro. The gestural language and text of the piece emerge from technosexual desire whose objects are the car and techno-assisted trans-corporeality.

The performance uses unfulfilled desire, breathing and intoxication in a quest for palpability. Our bodies construct fictions, our mouths suck and ooze, our lungs filter gases.

The car is the birthplace of technosexuality and techno-corporeality, its effects arousing, lethal, invisibly floating in the air, entering the lungs and bloodstream and exuding out. We want to suck and breathe the car. Our bodies are transformed by the air filled with technologically produced particulates.

Insatiability in the body turns into an intoxicated and craving desire, a tangled lust.
