Hellyys (Fin: Tenderness) is a 20-minute devised work by Queer performance trio Savage Parade (Adam Hall [USA], Inkeri Kallio [FI], Henry McPherson [UK]). The work was concieved as a segment in Robert Reid Allen's (Scot.) Anthem's for Queer Youth - a large-scale work for Piano, Soprano, and Video.
Hellyys is a devised work using text generated by the performers during the rehearsal process. The piece is semi-improvised from a scratch-score, and features movement and minor staging.
