Ultimate Fantasies is a project exploring the force of desire by Jennifer Boyd and Ruta Dumciute, and collaborators Leyla Pillai, Eunjung Kim, Madeleine Stack and P0$$€. They will be in residence at Guest Projects, London for the month of June 2018.
Join forces with us on the night of Sunday 24th June for kaleidoscopic joint force live essay by Jennifer Boyd, Ruta Dumciute and Leyla Pillai in the final room, followed by music and drinks.
Doors at 7pm. Performances at 8pm.
Free, non-booking. Donations welcome and go directly to the artists.
All Ultimate Fantasies events will take place on Sunday nights in June. We are also open with a donations bar in the afternoon 12-5pm. This day, time and form has been chosen in subversion of Sundays being traditionally capitalist and institutionally tortuous, in aim of stretching time and creating space in the city to hang out, and in the hope that it may mean those working in the night industries and outside of traditional hours are more easily able to attend.
