In Other Words is a collection of urgent reflections, created by 49 artists over 4 months in 2020 exploring their hopes and fears for the future at a time of global crisis. Through prose, poetry, drawing, collage and photography it is a clarion call for change from a diverse group rich in wisdom, shared experience, and what it means to be marginalised in the UK.
Examines fandom as a set of practices for approaching and writing about art.
Combines extracts from over 70 international practitioners, companies, collectives and makers from the fields of dance, theatre, music, live and performance art, and activism to form a sourcebook for students, researchers and practitioners.
Seventh issue in the Urban Pamphleteer series, gathering perspectives, provocations and vignettes on London’s LGBTQ+ night-time spaces
The aim of this book is to offer perspectives on performance art practice with a focus on teaching. This subject has rarely been approached in the literature and this book gives insights and inspiration for all those teaching performance art as well as to anyone else interested in this art form.
Starting from the premise that live performance is experienced in a material, local context, the chapters analyse the intricate and complex workings of queer dramaturgy within specific venues, cities, nations or transnationally.
