05 Mar A Room of Her Own
“There is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.” Virginia Woolf
We are very excited to have developed a new performance and digital installation following our period of research and development last year where we explored the relationship between digital technology and acrobatics. Commissioned by the Southbank Centre for the Women of The World Festival, A Room of Her Own is being premiered this weekend.
A Room of Her Own’ is a mesmerising, timeless digital installation animated with live acrobatic performance – where ideas and thoughts are floating through a room together with their creator. The installation is playing with the ephemeral nature of inspiration in the moments before it is captured in words: a contented world of creativity, where solace is found in the company of ideas. Inspired by poets and writers across the ages, the piece is also a comment on the persistent lack and recognition of female writers, particularly in theatre.
You can see the Digital Installation from 10am-10pm Friday-Sunday in the 5th floor Poetry Library Foyer at the Southbank Centre. We will be performing live in the installation at 11:30am, 1pm and 3pm on Saturday and Sunday.
