Our Needful Things: A Work in Progress
Wed 19 October 2016, 14:00 – 18:00 BST
Our Needful Things is a participatory micro-performance that explores the concept of ‘need’ in contemporary culture through a task-based, haptic dramaturgy. The intimate one-on-one experience provokes the audience participants to think about what it means to have a need and what the implications are of fulfilling it. The intimate one-on-one experience has been developed in response to crisis relief regulations and recommendations from the World Food Programme (WFP), the World Health Organisation, The UN and Amnesty International that inform aid for refugees.
We are in the first stage of research and development for the project and the experiences offered as part of Journeys Festival International will be work in progress.
