PS/Y’s Hysteria programme and CoolTan Arts present 'Slug Horizons', a new performance by artists Florence Peake and Eve Stainton.

About

'Slug Horizons' is an on-going collaborative project by Florence Peake and Eve Stainton. By exploring the expressive potentialities of women’s bodies through intimacy, touch and collective reclaiming, their work promotes an emotional landscape of bravery in response to restrictive normative attitudes to the intimate bodies of women. Following a residency at CoolTan Arts, they are developing a performance that radically reimagines the term 'hysteria' - a concept that historically has been defined by men and used to analyse women’s bodies and behaviours. 

As part of their residency, the artists will be holding workshops that invite CoolTan Arts participants and the public into their development process. The residency will culminate in a new performance on Friday 16 February, 7.00 pm. 

Prior to the performance, a free public workshop will take place on Sunday 11 February (3.00 – 5.00 pm). Artists and participants will explore sound-vibrations, intimacy and qualities of touch through movement, discussion, reflective drawing and writing.
