Setting the Scene will host a series of practitioners all involved in performance, film and urban narrative to discuss the role of the setting within which their work takes place. These settings range from artificially constructed environments to site-specific locations within the city.

We have invited:

30 Bird Productions - http://www.30birdproductions.org
Live Art Development Agency - http://www.thisisliveart.co.uk
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.

FS_51 FROM TRAUMA 1 - 11...

FS_51 With Emma Hedditch, Anthony Davies, Howard Slater, JakobJakobsen

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' at the 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.
