Part reading-group, part-film club, and part-social, Gut-Reactions returns for its newest series of Study Room Sessions at LADA on the third Tuesday of every month starting November 2019.
Each month there will be a selected reading available from LADA that will be available to read in advance. Or, just turn up and get involved in the chat. We will also watch selected documentation from the archive to inform conversation.
We will be watching courageous performances that come into dialogue with the reading.
Gut Reactions is always a relaxed and open setting that provides the opportunity for anyone to come and ask questions, discover new things and to encounter the unexpected.
Please join the Gut Reactions mailing list via the booking link to receive the reading material for each session and to be kept up to date.
