For the first in this new series of Domestic “at homes”, we invited six artists to try out new works about what’s on their minds — using whatever resources they have to hand…
A chat on a hill above the city;
The highs and lows of romance in lockdown;
A DNA test, a dead bird, and a misjudged identity;
Wash your hands and business as usual;
When I think of home;
The space between us will not be televised.
Real lives, real stories, real homes.
Afreena Islam · A Word From Your Prime Minister
Wash your hands and business as usual.
Nathan Birkinshaw · A Kestrel for a Nath
“I think I’ve made a documentary about the history of who we are, where we fit — you think it’s any good?”
A history of who we might be, and where we might fit.
Emma Geraghty · A view from the temple
“There’s a pretty big hill near my house with a good view of the city. Come and sit on a bench with me, and let’s have a chat.”
Cheryl Martin · When I Think Of Home
“I will sing and talk. As ever. But I’ll probably ask you all a question and try to get you to answer in the chat — if you’re brave enough.”
Alex Bradley · The space between us will not be televised
An action in support of those fighting for their lives in whatever context.
Levantes Dance Theatre · Lockdown Canapé
A quirky act about the highs + lows of romance during lockdown…
Hosted by Peader Kirk · includes Dawn Chorus
