Dylan Spencer-Davidson is an artist and performer based in Berlin, working across sound, performance, text and social practice. His work wrestles with interpersonal power dynamics, neuroatypical subjectivities and the inadequacies of verbal language. Combining research into therapy practices with choreography, autobiographical fragments and affect-laden soundscapes, his works explore the emotional territories lying beneath the violence of normativity.
