Join us for IAS Benjamin Meaker Visiting Professor Henry Daniel's video/audio installation and live performance, Encounters, from his Project Barca at the Wickham Theatre in the Drama Department.
Encounters is a cinematic and aural exploration of material used in the stage production of Here Be Dragons (2012), Barca: el otro lado (2012), and Here Be Dragon/Non plus ultra (2013) by Henry Daniel.
It features a group of young people performing their identities live and on screen in relation to an event that spurred a large-scale migratory movement over five hundred years ago.
Encounters is specifically designed for the aesthetic of the contemporary art gallery. The new live element features students currently enrolled in the Theatre and Performance programme at the University of Bristol.
All are warmly welcome. The performance will be followed by a drinks reception.
