In the midst of rapid change, polarisation and crises of social imagination locally and globally, small acts of imagination and friendship become radical interventions. TO YOU TO YOU TO YOU is an urgent gathering of love and dissent that seeks to connect, exchange and witness through performance and assembly, and through the action, idea or form of a love letter.
A critical mass of over twenty artists from the UK, mainland Europe and beyond come together in a programme of performed responses over two evenings including commissioned work with artists travelling from Athens, Paris, Chicago and within the UK to perform.
Friday 5 October:
Brian Catling & David Tolley
Tim Etchells (video short)
Mikhail Karikis (video short)
Saturday 6 October:
Reverend Billy and The Stop Shopping Choir
Lin Hixson & Matthew Goulish
Erica Scourti (video short)
Further artists to be announced.
This two day programme builds on Love Letters to a (Post)Europe at Bios, Athens in which 26 artists created short works in response to a provocation at the close of 2015. A selection of these works also forms part of the 2018 programme to be witnessed in the UK for the first time and some for the first time as live performance.
Responses span the spectrum of performance and the letter form including dance, text, spoken word, song and experimental hybrid forms.
"Love Letters to a (Post)Europe connects artistic practice and intervention with solidarity, as a mode of visibility."
