BYOBaby Live Art Workshop

As part of our LADA Screens Double Bill, centred on motherhood, LADA is delighted to invite you to BYOBaby Live Art Workshop.

BYOBaby Live Art Workshop is an artist-led exploration facilitated by Dr. Hannah Ballou, welcoming artist-parents and their little ones.

The workshop embraces the themes of interruption, levity, unruliness, and autobiography as participants will engage in a series of multi-disciplinary exercises and prompts drawn from Ballou’s own practice and research into performance-making. You might find yourself drawing, writing, moving, singing, and tending to your babe as needed. We will work unapologetically alongside our babies who will certainly interrupt us and that’s rather the point.

Artist Bio

Hannah Ballou’s work is feminist, sometimes autobiographical, and challenges configurations of the comic body by asking who is funny, when, how, why, and why not?  She is known to work with live animals and sleeping children. She once found out she was pregnant live on stage. She is behind the Marina Abramopug project, neo-burlesque alter-ego Lambchop Magoo, and is founder of Kingston Live Art. Recent works include ShhhThe Doctor Is In, and the hoo:ha series.  She is a senior lecturer in Drama at the Kingston School of Art.
