‘Dear friend’, a performative reading of letters across time, written by Rachel Epp Buller and performed together with the artists Deirdre M. Donoghue, Barbara Phillip, and Weronika Zielinska-Klein. This performative reading of letters and epistolary texts considers how feminist maternal relations of care and attunement in the present, and a willingness to listen to voices from the past, might help us to radically reorient our ways of relational being for the future.
Doors will open at 18:00, the performance commences at 19:00 and lasts for 1 hour. Before the performance there will be soup served and afterwards the bar will be open.
Please reserve in advance via: firstname.lastname@example.org
