An evening of poetry readings on *embodied* language with Jesper List Thomsen and Hanne Lippard.

About

Avoiding The Genius by Jesper List Thomsen is a piece of writing to be read. To be re-embodied. Using language, and a strategy of accumulation, to lift eight sculptures from their original site in the Villa Giulia, Palermo, Sicily; Avoiding The Genius is made up of nice parts that brings a historical analogy to a contemporary body. Aware of the body as a site of both semantic and gestural potential, the reading will channel and elaborate – not interpret what so blatantly calls for interpretation.

c u l8tr elevator by Hanne Lippard is a performance that deals with formality in communication and excessive excuses, deriving from the discussion about women being overly apologetic and discrete, and the make-up of politeness in language.

This event is presented with the support of Arts and Science Festival 2017, University of Birmingham.

This event is free but booking essential as spaces are limited. Please book your ticket through our eventbrite page.
