Join Against the Run of Play for an evening of new performances by Louise Ashcroft, Corey Hayman and Rowland Hill.


Using spoken narrative, participatory games and choreographic tools, the works will explore each artist’s personal relationship to the beautiful game.

Friday 7 June, 6pm: Evening of performance
with Louise Ashcroft, Corey Hayman and Rowland Hill

Match screening: World Cup opening night + France ���� v. South Korea ����, k.o. at 8pm


Louise Ashcroft is trying to overthrow capitalism but keeps getting distracted by the new Nike SB Lunar One-Shots. She makes performances and installations which recontextualise objects and observations discovered through fieldwork in ordinary places like shopping malls, strangers’ houses, or trade fairs.

Corey Hayman’s work is borne out of primary experiences with found materials/subject matter in discourses surrounding class, race, gender and the envelopment of these factors in socio-political, economic and cultural experiences.

Rowland Hill draws on a background in theatre and music, her work plays with gestural and choreographic regimes, often with a host of collaborators including dancers, composers, conductors and interpreters.


This events is part of Against the Run of Play, a programme of cultural events and commissions taking place in South East London around the women’s football World Cup. For more information visit: https://againsttherunofplay.club/
