Lois Keidan, Co-founder and Director of LADA will be in conversation with Elvira Santamaria on Wednesday 23 November at 21.15 as part of SACRED: Homelands – a festival of international performance, taking place at Toynbee Studios, London from Wednesday 23 to Sunday 27 November 2016. 

SACRED: Homelands is an international festival featuring UK premiere performances, durational/installation works and in depth conversations with artists travelling from Tonga, India, Canada, New Zealand, as well as Europe, many of whom are visiting these shores for the first time. In times of grave social and environmental injustices caused by war, pestilence and climate change that create so much upheaval of communities across the globe, the artists responded to SACRED: Homelands' invitation to make a “homeland” for a week in the East End of London, to gather, to share their lived experiences and what is sacred to all of us through storytelling and conversation. 

 SACRED: Homelands artists: Berlin (Belgium), Daina Ashbee (Québec), Nathalie Bikoro (Gabon), Inder Salim (India), James Luna (USA), Josephine Garcia Jowett (Philippines/NZ),  Issam Kourbaj (Syria), Varsha Nair (India/Thailand) Elvira Santamaria (Mex/Ire), Latai Taumoepeau (Tonga/Aus), Urnamo (Iraq/Switz), Via Negativa (Slovenia) Zierle & Carter (UK)

SACRED: Homelands 2016 has been curated by Nikki Milican, former Artistic Director of New Moves International, producers of New Territories and The National Review of Live Art, the UK's most significant and influential festival of performance that ran from 1979-2010.
