Event description
The Life of Breath project is delighted to invite you to join us for the official launch of the Bristol installation of Catch Your Breath.

About this Event

This Bristol installation of Catch Your Breath is a multi-sensory, interdisciplinary, participatory exploration of breath. This intimate invitation is an opportunity for you to engage with, take part in, and share the exhibition with others.

6.30pm: Speeches and nibbles

7.00pm: A guided preview of the exhibition display in the Brunel Building's beautiful atrium space (until Dec 2019, and then appearing in different forms around the city) together with an opportunity to contribute to a breath related global participatory artwork.

8:00pm: Special performance of 'The Book of Jo' in the hospital Sanctuary

About the performance: The Book of Jo is a new theatre show by Viv Gordon, commissioned by Life of Breath to animate research into Breath and Breathlessness. It explores what happens when life falls apart. How can we maintain hope when the worst happens? And why do bad things happen anyway? A woman faced with a rare and random terminal diagnosis sits in the debris of her life contemplating meaning and social justice with the dubious help of the Old Testament story The Book of Job.

Viv Gordon is a theatre maker and arts activist producing feisty work about mental health and trauma based on her lived experience. Read more about Viv at her website: www.vivgordon.com
