Word of Warning’s Summer Season starts with a live-streamed online performance. Domestic features six artists, with six commentaries on where we are at the moment, in a beta-test platform for new work from home.
Featuring artists Afreena Islam, Alex Bradley, Cheryl Martin, Emma Geraghty, Levantes Dance Theatre and Nathan Birkinshaw, Domestic asks what kind of art can you make at home. When your table becomes your stage and your camera becomes your audience, how does performance change?
In 2013, 2015 and 2017, Word of Warning presented Domestic works in tower blocks in transition. Little did they know then, that in 2020 their homes would become their only setting and performance space to create new work. This new series of Domestic, carried out from each of the artist’s homes, features six new pieces exploring the current situation. Each artist has used whatever everyday resources they have to hand, at home.
