LADA Screens #1: Shaun Caton

‘I am going to have nightmares for weeks, but I can’t stop watching’

– audience member at Shaun Caton’s performance ‘Netherwhat’, The Maurice Einhardt Neu Gallery London, October 2009.

For the first LADA Screens we will be showing A Glimpse Inside the Grotto (2014), a documentary film about the work of Shaun Caton by Julius G. Beltrame and Robert S. Pugh.

The film will be available to view online for free on the LADA Screens video channel for two weeks between between 15 and 29 July 2015.

LADA Screens is a series of free, online screenings of seminal performance documentation, works to camera, short films/video and archival footage. It is part of Live Online, LADA’s dedicated space where you can watch short videos and films drawn from LADA’s Study Room or generated through our programmes and initiatives.

Each screening will be available to view for a limited time only, and will be launched with a live event at the White Building in Hackney Wick, London. Online art magazine, thisistomorrow will also feature the films on their website for the duration of the screenings.
