Erin Robinsong & Andréa de Keijzer (Montréal, Canada)

How does climate change, a vastly distributed emergency, become personal? What is it about the slow-motion accident that escapes our defense responses?


In This ritual is not an accident, time and scale are re-calibrated as personal histories are shredded, recomposed, and the slow-motion accident of climate change becomes intimate. Women undergo surgery, first passive, then actively involved in their own operations. Created for small audiences, this performance becomes an emergent text, windstorm, and choir; a contemporary ritual to reset nervous systems collectively.

Tickets: £15 – 20 (sliding scale) Audience limited to 25. Reserve your ticket at [email protected]

Advisory: periods of nudity and loud noise. Created for small audiences, this event may sell out. Reserve early!   More information about the performance here
