BODY (UN)MUTE
Online Exhibition

BODY (UN)MUTE

Available now

A two-day online festival that looks into the rituals of dancing and masking in times of social distancing. How do these rituals happen in online space? What are the solutions that can empower us and activate our bodies? How do we navigate through this switch between private and public space? What kind of knowledge and ideas can we extract from new media artists and dancers? Together, we will create an online experience that stays part of our memory as festivals do. Last few months, our movements and ways of communicating have been impacted by a global crisis. Distances between our bodies in public and private spaces have been regulated by new measurements. Our freedom of movement is on hold. Dancing became possible only in private, and suddenly it has a different meaning and context. It introduced another form of visibility, “performing” for the web camera on our online meetings, dates, events. In the beginning, it felt weird and awkward, but we are adjusting to it. Now it is time to emancipate the online body and get a deeper understanding of the new realness. It is time to unmute the body.

A weekly series of mini recitals played on the harpsichord by Pawel Siwczak, from his home in London. Live Every Friday at 7.30pm (BST)  and available to watch any time after an event.

Love's Labour's Lost

Available now

The court of Navarre: the King and his three Lords vow to stay away from wine, women and luxury; but when the princess and her ladies from France arrive, they begin to change their minds. As each gives in to his affections and breaks his oath, they all try – unsuccessfully - to keep their love secret from each other. Presented at Shakespeare's Globe for the World Shakespeare Festival in May 2012, Deafinitely Theatre and Shakespeare’s Globe’s production of Love's Labour's Lost then toured the UK as part of the Globe to Globe Festival, in which each of Shakespeare's 37 plays were shown in a different language. By translating the rich, pun-riddled text of Love's Labour's Lost into the physical language of BSL, Deafinitely Theatre created a new interpretation of Shakespeare's comedy, accessible to theatregoers of all backgrounds. This is the first time this has been attempted with a full Shakespeare play.

Alice May Williams, Dream City – More, Better, Sooner (2016)

Available now

A meditation on the changing face of London’s landmark Battersea Power Station – smokestack energy colossus of yesteryear now rapidly transforming into an upscale lifestyle playground of tomorrow. Combining archive footage of the building in its industrial heyday with computer-generated projections of the form it will soon inhabit (or what, if things had been different, it might otherwise have become), Williams’ film concentrates our attention just as firmly on the present moment – on the rumble of construction and the grumbles of disruption that currently characterise the site.
