The House of St Barnabas and Smoke Creatives in collaboration with the Stuart Hall Foundation present Countless Actions: Movie Night with Elaine Mitchener.
The evening will start with the screening of Lizzie Borden’s Born in Flames, a film that was chosen by artist Elaine Mitchener.
Following the screening, Mitchener will talk more about why she chose this film and how it has influenced her life and work.
Mitchener is an experimental vocalist, movement artist and composer, whose work encompasses improvisation, contemporary music theatre and performance art. She has performed at numerous UK and European festivals, venues, and galleries including the 56th Venice Biennale, Southbank Centre, Wellcome Collection, and the Institute of Contemporary Arts. The Stuart Hall Foundation co-commissioned Elaine’s latest project, SWEET TOOTH, which premiered at Bluecoat in Liverpool in November 2017.
Tickets: £10 (plus the fees)
This event is part of the Countless Actions: Movements, Action and Social Change, a series of events organised by Smoke Creatives and The House of St Barnabas. Countless Actions will bring together people who are using their creativity and influence to attract like-minded individuals, forming communities through music, art, film, design, spoken word, and independent publishing. These innovative and ambitious individuals are at the forefront of social change. They’re changing what it means to be an activist in a hyper-politicized world and taking countless actions that shape and continue very necessary conversations.
