XxA marks a quest into the underworld, the chaotic breeding grounds where selves are sculpted and identities moulded. It traces a place where friendship is magic, radical care a transformative force, and where hybrid bodies spawn queer joy.

With social expectations and personal stories of love, loss, pain ever-present, navigating this ambiguous world raises questions of being and becoming. In XxA, where neither characters nor landscapes are ever fixed, we witness eternal metamorphosis. Is change this sore and tender planet’s only constant? Do we find ourselves within a spectrum where alleged opposites merge?
