LADA will be presenting two screening programmes of radical work for SPILL 2014:

Marginalised Bodies

A screening of artists working with their queer, disabled, black and female bodies in brilliant and subversive ways. Featuring La Ribot, Harold Offeh, Kira O’Reilly, Disabled Avant Garde, George Chakravarthi, and many more. Contained by the secrecy of the night hours and the wearing of horse blinkers; the performance score involves actions of cutting, tattooing, writing and speaking. The work explores domestication and the feral through actions that open and restrict the body (such as fasting, cutting and urinating).

 

Club & Underground Culture

A screening of live performance and work to camera rooted in underground and club culture. Featuring mavericks, outsiders, legends, gender terrorists and out and out freaks, including David Hoyle, CHRISTEENE, Ursula Martinez, Rocío Boliver, Duckie and many more.
