Lines Cut Through Us All

"While the UK Government can't make its mind up if it wants a No Deal, Peoples Vote, Article 50 Extension or to all agree to disagree and call the whole thing off, we can be sure of one thing: artists from across the UK and Europe will convene in Leeds (a 50/50 Leave/Remain city). From the gross oversimplifications, and wilfully deceptive dialogue in media and politics through to the inherently pre lingual desire for humans to understand and to connect, the Performing Britain artists will undertake a one time only performance marathon centred around ‘British identity’. Artists will present their ideas, share their lived experiences, offer us gestures and interventions that burrow deeper than the public discourse in hopes to better define and articulate a new narrative for British identity. New notions of what it means to be 'British' and what it means to be excluded."

Lines Cut Through Us All was a commissioned essay for Centre for Live Art Yorkshire (formerly Live Art Bistro) - for the unrealised programme; Performing Britain.
