(Re)Fresh

Inspired by questions of AGE and WAGE, (Re)Fresh is an evening of new intergenerational commissions and dialogues, invited performances, and top tips for younger artists.

Contributors include Sheree Rose & Martin O’Brien; Bette Bourne & Paul Shaw; Franko B & jamie lewis hadley; Julia Bardsley & The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein; Tim Etchells & Hester Chillingworth; Scottee, Andy Field, and Mel Evans.

(Re)Fresh is part of Peopling the Palace, a programme of talks, debates and presentations curated and produced by the Drama Department of Queen Mary in collaboration with the Live Art Development Agency and the University’s Film and Media Art & Technology departments.

As a bonus event to the (Re)Fresh programme at Queen Mary on 21st February, the Live Art Development Agency will present (Re)Fresh Extra at the White Building in Hackney Wick on Saturday 23 February with Sheree Rose & Martin O’Brien, and Franko B & jamie lewis hadley.

The legendary US performance artist Sheree Rose will present the first ever UK lecture about her extraordinary life and work, especially her collaborations with the late Bob Flanagan. The lecture will be followed by a in-conversation between Sheree and Martin O’Brien.

(Re)Fresh Extra will also feature an ‘all live’ and expanded version of the new intergenerational dialogue performance by Franko B and jamie lewis hadley. (Re)Fresh Extra is a free event. There is a limited capacity and places will be available on a first come first in basis.

Peopling the Palace builds on Queen Mary’s work over the last decade with East End Collaborations and AiR –public programmes offering platforms, workshops, professional development support and public contexts for artists to develop and present their work and for audiences to engage with new ideas in performance.

Peopling the Palace marks the beginning of the Drama Department’s new relationship with the beautifully renovated Peoples Palace, and also represents a shift in curatorial focus by relating the collaborating artists and practices to some of the key research issues being undertaken by the Drama Department – specifically issues of Age and Wage.
