Coinciding with the Up in Arms exhibition, the artists Anna Maria Nabirye and Annie Saunders will present a live performance in De La Warr Pavilion’s auditorium.

Working from the entire Up in Arms archive of documentation and film, Nabirye and Saunders will edit audio and visuals separately and play them in ‘sync’ for the first time in front of an audience. As they appear in front of the moving image work, their performance is a choreographic response to the synchronicity and discord of this live edit.

Through movement, layering, projection, and shadow play, this experimental approach to the cinematic experience will embody the complexities of interracial friendships.
