Live performance event
Saturday 4 November, 2-5pm
Please note that this event contains adult content and is not suitable for under 18s.
As part of their exhibition, Florence Peake and Tai Shani have developed a live performance event, followed by an in-conversation with Dr Amy Tobin on future feminisms and the collaborative nature of the exhibition.
Peake and Shani will perform two separate works simultaneously.
The first, a reading from Tai Shani's on-going project, Dark Continent Productions an experimental and expanded adaptation of Christine de Pizan's 1405 pioneering feminist book, The Book of the City of Ladies, within which Pizan builds an allegorical city for notable women drawn from a medieval conception of history, where fact, fiction and myth are blurred, will be performed by actress Maya Lubinsky. At the same time, Peake will perform with dancer Eve Stainton - interpenetrating waves of energy constellating in time and space, a vocal and movement score that demonstrates some of the methodologies used in the wall paintings and looks at penetration from an energetic perspective and how bodies are porous to their environments.
