Description

Although the study of hysteria is multifaceted, historically the term hysteria has been defined by men and associated with women: the male gaze of society observing and analysing women’s bodies and behaviours. Florence Peake and Eve Stainton’s on-going collaborative project Slug Horizons radically reimagines this relationship by exploring the expressive potentialities of women’s bodies through intimacy, touch and collective reclaiming. Their work promotes an emotional landscape of bravery in response to restrictive normative attitudes to the intimate bodies of women. Through a residency at CoolTan Arts, Peake and Stainton will develop their project, holding workshops that invite CoolTan Arts participants and the public into their development process. The residency will culminate in a new performance on Friday 16 February, 7.00 pm
