Part of Co:LAB Festival
- 23 July 2017
- The Studio
SO FEY is a visual and choreographic project created with female participants from Mixed Black and White heritage and acts as a modern day archive of this first generation's experience.
The sensations of exotic otherness are placed in focus and immersed within a DIY multimedia environment, overlapping imagery and live sound exploring what it means to live with these assumptions, as we head towards 2020 when the mixed 'category' will be the biggest minority in the UK!
Co:LAB will platform the work as an initial sharing of this process-led piece by artist Amy Lawrence created through workshops with collaborating artists and participants, young women of this dual demographic.
The Open Exchange has been generously supported by The Leche Trust and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation
