Setting the Scene will host a series of
practitioners all involved in performance, film and urban narrative

environments to site-specific locations within the city.

Urban Words - http://www.urbanwords.org.uk
to discuss, how real or artificial settings contribute to a
piece of performance/Live art/film or text and question if those
art forms can contribute to the identity of the place/specific site
after the piece is over.

From Trauma 1-11 to.....?
In the Summer of 2011 Emma Hedditch, Anthony Davies, Howard Slater,
Jakob Jakobsen along with Henriette Heise, worked together on
'Trauma 1 - 11: Stories about The Copenhagen Free
University and the surrounding society in the last ten years'
Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde Denmark. This exhibition
was developed and staged as an attempt to retrace personal,
collective memories within the broader (and often traumatic)
framework of global events.
Since then, Howard, Anthony and Jakob have continued to work,
together with others, on Mayday
Rooms, an 'organisation' set up to recover and further
socialise histories of dissent and struggle. This along with Emma's
long term commitment to Feminist History/s will form the starting
point of the discussion at public works.
