Phillip Adams, Australian maverick of contemporary dance presents Triptych, a divine intervention of queer crucifixions inspired by Francis Bacon’s triptych paintings (1944–1986). Bacon’s use of life and death, beauty and violence, civilisation and barbarism are where Adams draws parallels, as the work comes to symbolise more than the historic and religious event itself. Triptych celebrates the cultural kitsch of Christian spirituality and transforms its heteronormative iconography with a queer veneer.

Adams creates choreographic abstractions of Bacon’s crucifixions: dancers enact duets of physical detachment and violent tremors that evoke the spectacle of horror – a distinguishing feature of Bacon’s oeuvre. Amidst a sphincter-sex-sling installation, performers portray Bacon’s theatrical and surreal imaginariums of the crucifixion in a Disney-esque, porn-like ballet parody of penetrations. This evocative subject matter will be presented in-the-round at Sydney’s most unadulterated and immediate performance chamber, Phoenix Central Park.
