Join an online community and participate in four specially commissioned Happenings created by early career artists all exploring new stages for their work. Theatrical, digital and experimental, these new works offer interaction, connection and community when coming together in live spaces has been restricted.
This experiment happening right in front of you offers new performative ways to share the work of extraordinary artists with you, our audience. We hope these experiences may delight, inform and provoke.
Boundless Happenings are co-produced with Spy Studio and have been made possible thanks to the support of Bloomberg Corporate Philanthropies, the City Bridge Trust and the Wates Foundation.
I’m Lewis and I am currently studying BA (Hons) Performance, Politics & Society at Goldsmiths, University of London. I work across a number of cabaret and community arts settings, including a current project with Greenwich Theatre and theatre company ‘wipe your feet theatre’ where we explored self acceptance and body image through drag. I am an aspiring academic and arts therapist who aims to research and develop new ways of thinking about cabaret practice. I question how it can be used in new settings, such as participatory/community arts, education and arts based therapies. Unless I am frantically running around with my books flying everywhere, you can probably find me chilling in a charity shop with a green tea in hand.
