Drill, noise, and choreography

Blackhaine is a multi-disciplinary artist who works with drill, noise, and choreography. His performances are inspired by the erratic, unconventional movements of butoh, a Japanese form of dance theatre known as “the dance of darkness”. His music is simultaneously nihilistic and romantic; inspired by an upbringing in northern England, beat poets like Burroughs and Ginsburg, as well as dub, ‘donk’ (a local strain of happy hardcore), and industrial iconoclasts like Coil and Throbbing Gristle. His choreography and scenography work includes collaborations with the likes of Kanye West and Playboi Carti. For Sónar 2024, he’s preparing a one-off, site-specific performance: expect a confrontational, physical, and visceral show.
