Your Story, My Story, Their Story Now

natashas-arc

Presented by Natasha Davis in collaboration with ARC

An online performance film recorded around secret corners of Stockton and surrounding areas to encounter moments of laughter, loss, kindness and new beginnings, shared by your neighbours – old and new.

Out of photographs, poetic lines, memories, objects and mementos from your neighbours’ lives, stories emerge honouring moments of transformation through past and current challenges.

In an open conversation after the film you will be able to ask questions to the contributors and share, if you wish, a similar experience and thoughts of your own during the online gathering.

Natasha Davis is a performance and visual artist with over forty solo and collaborative projects in a range of media including live performance, installation, film and publication. Her interdisciplinary, personal and politically engaged work focuses on crossing borders, body and memory. She collaborates with extraordinary artists, scientists, institutions and participants from all walks of life, creating work that is embedded in the belief that art can inspire change. She mixes autobiography, fantasy, research and technology to communicate a poetic truth that crossing borders is a balancing act between loss and liberation, as well as a potent space for opening a conversation about who we are, with a view to shaking up existing stories and initiating new ones.
