Lou Lou Sainsbury

Sunday 16 Sep 2018, 12-2pm & 4-6pm

The session from 4 - 6pm is currently full, please get in touch if you would like to be placed on the waiting list or to reserve your spot for the 12pm - 2pm session.

“The only big proposal I have left remains that all images need to be rewilded…”

Lou Lou Sainsbury leads Wild Combination, a guided tour on how to be wild and other peculiar classifications.

Join us for this performative workshop with readings, moving image, walking and writing exercises, drawing from research into depictions of strange creatures in Medieval bestiaries. In the time-travelling tour through Flat Time House, Wild Combination explores issues of representation, wildness and belonging; working towards a new classification system of inhabitants/living beings everywhere.

This is a live-performance & workshop - participants are invited to take part in some movement & writing based exercises. The level of participation is up to you. All living beings (including blemmyaes and cenocephalys) are welcome. 

The day has been split into two sessions:

12pm - 2pm

4pm - 6pm

As there is limited space for participants, please email RSVP at: [email protected]
