Join us for a screening of performances-to-camera from the performingborders archive.

We will screen AMNION (2021) by Lynn Lu, A place to sit by Tara Fatehi (2021) & RE:seeding, in correspondence (2020) by Jade Montserrat, followed by a Long Table performance, through which we’ll unpack and discuss the work and its themes.

The Long Table is a participatory performance created by artist Lois Weaver, to help facilitate non-hierarchical conversations around a table. We will use this tool in the event to host a discussion session with all those in attendance.

BSL interpretation and refreshments will be provided.

Please note that this event is two hours long.
