Live Art performance night, featuring introductions and performances from Gobscure: Hyena in Petticoats and Rebecca Redican: Delay Six.
hyena in petticoats is a defiant performance and exhibition that takes its starting point as the 18th-century writer and activist Mary Wollstonecraft, who was erased as a ‘hyena in petticoats’. The performance is accompanied by images of the costumes and other items used within it, together with a downloadable pamphlet with art and activities including placards to sloganise, templates for masks of defiance, and other creative resistance activities offering ways of remembering, creating living memorials to ensure we are not written out of history. The exhibition will also include work previously created in response to Mary Wollstonecraft but not available online until now, including 25 visual poems.
Delay Six (an anagram of Dyslexia) is an interactive work which explores the difficulty that people with dyslexia face every time they pick up a book, but also the beauty this can create. Rebecca and anyone who wishes to join in will make a shared piece of online live visual art which will be created before and during the performance evening. Anyone can be involved, so if you wish to participate, ‘like’ the Delay Six Art Facebook page to keep up to date and find out how you can take part at home. https://www.facebook.com/DelaySixArt
