flop to the floor: a performance lecture follows the Study Room Residency undertaken by artist and researcher Jude Browning at LADA in June 2019. This live event looks at notions of female vocality and expectations of formal public address and will begin with a new performance by Amelia Barratt.
Jude Browning will present a performance lecture, with sections of the script taken from her PhD thesis Mouthwork: Staged Presentation and Laboured Expression and drawing on Karen Finley’s 1966 performance It’s My Body and Lydia Lunch’s satirical screenplay Psychomenstrum (1989/93). Browning has worked with choreographer Janice Parker on the movement for this performance, looking at the physical gesture of ‘the flop’ as a means to undermine the conventions of Western power dynamics performed in public speaking.
Drinks and refreshments will be served.
LADA is wheelchair accessible, and provides gender inclusive bathrooms.

Jude Browning is an artist and researcher based in Glasgow. Her work examines acts of writing and performance in formal contexts of public address.
