A good love story shouldn’t have too many words. This one gets to the point as directly as possible. It turns „me too“ into sex-positive empowerment and dark comedy, talks about contemporary live art, genderfluidity, online dating, polyamory and its pitfalls. This story is a product of lockdown 2020, an account of a personal experiences, which usually stay behind the screens. It is also a document of the Heteraclub project and the safe space created there, in which hundreds of women shared their love stories.
Imagine a city where animals of all kinds, including humanz, live together as equals... Animals of Manchester (including HUMANZ) was a Live Art experiment, that explored what life might be like if we had interspecies equality. In and around Whitworth Gallery and Park a team of artists, kids and researchers created the alternative city: There was a palace for mice and for humans, a film studio run by beetles, a hedgehog hospital, a townhall with two cows as mayors, living memorials for extinct species, a Bestiary Beauty Parlour and a Life Art Library honouring animals as artists and performers. Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival. A project by Theatre of Research & Live Art Development Agency.
In the last two decades, many different proposals and concepts of artistic and art-based research have been developed and explored. Participatory Art Based Research (PABR) is one of them. Since 2012, 50 participatory research projects were realised, which brought together more than 2000 researchers, co-researchers and participants from all areas of society, art, and science. The online resource of PABR aims to summarise strategies, potentials and problems of participatory art-based research and make them widely available. Please visit: https://pab-research.de
QUEENS is a heteratopia, a temporary club to adress heterasexual desire and satisfaction. With the means of art. With tenderness. With beauty. With intimacy among strangers. With truth.
Seven male performers are trained by artists and sexperts from London and Hamburg to develop their very own One-on-One-performance. And it is all for you:
