Brayford Pool, Lincoln (further details TBC)
Following a day-long workshop led by artist Rhine Bernardino, participants will deliver an ad hoc performance on the Brayford Pool. Themes explored will include piracy and sailing as alternative ways of living, considering sustainability and investigating how to explore and utilise the ocean / waters in response to environmental disasters – expanding speculative thinking in creating alternative futures and collective narratives. On Board also investigates how arts and culture will be intrinsically embedded in the composition of such environments, with live art as its strongest foundation.
This event is delivered by independent curator and researcher Linda Rocco as part of a wider programme marking 200 years since Antarctica was first sighted. Celsius forms part of Mansions of the Future’s Lincoln Live season and Antarctica In Sight – a UK wide cultural programme of activity supported by the UK Antarctica Heritage Trust. This series of talks, workshops and performance will explore the groundbreaking intersections of arts and STEM subjects with a focus on climate change and the uniquely precarious position of Antarctica in today’s sociopolitical climate. The week long programme will feature contributions from artists Rhine Bernadino, Lula Mebrahtu, Aidan Moesby and Josefina Nelimarkka.
This project is part of Mansions of the Future’s Lincoln Live programme March – August 2020 (Season extended in response to COVID-19). Departing from Lincoln’s rich entertainment and theatre history, Lincoln Live features new commissions which exist at the intersections of disciplinary boundaries. The season is a celebration of performative ventures that stand resolutely marginal to both the history of English theatre and the often exclusive, disciplinary rhetoric of contemporary performance art.
