Performing Sustainable Worlds: film screening and exhibition
Tue 8 November 2016, 18:30 – 21:00 GMT
Making its UK premiere, Performing Sustainable Worlds is a documentary about the challenges of building a society for all ages and the power of coming together across generations. This playful and thought-provoking documentary tells the story of community theatre workshops and performances that took place in Sheffield, Jinja (Uganda) and Nanjing (China) in 2015/16.
The film’s first UK public screening will be followed by a reception with the local cast and accompanied by a multimedia exhibition about ‘Intersection’, an arts and social research project about intergenerational justice, consumption and sustainability. The exhibition will include some early research findings, photography, and intergenerational creative writing from a workshop with acclaimed Sheffield poet Helen Mort.
