The HAUS of SEQUANA are an all-female urban tribe from in and around London's dirty Deptford. For several years this risk-taking art collective have been stirring up festivals, club nights and art events around the country with multi-sensorial hypnotic processions and rituals that mix the provocative with the comic. Both their antics and their wildly elaborate costumes and body paint draw inspiration from various forms of theatrical escapism: carnival traditions, tribal dress and ceremonies, circus clowns, and fetish. As such, Haus of Sequana's performances aim not only to entertain, arouse and thoroughly unsettle audiences but to demonstrate the possibility of a temporary escape from the tedium of gender identity, social conformity and the daily grind.
Haus of Sequana will be showcasing their latest designs at Showreel on 12th October.
