Through their residency at CoolTan Arts, Peake and Stainton will develop their on-going collaborative project 'Slug Horizons', holding workshops that invite CoolTan Arts participants and the public into their development process.
'Slug Horizons' radically reimagines the term 'hysteria' - a term that historically has been defined by men and used to analyse women’s bodies and behaviours - 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.
The 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.
The residency will culminate in a new performance on Friday 16 February, 7.00 pm.
