Long Table: Queer Spaces and Anti-Capitalist Resistance - Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts - Brighton

Queer performance icon Lois Weaver (Split Britches) invites you to take a seat at the Long Table with other audience members, artists, curators, students and residents. Across the UK, communities have been resisting government structures that enforce oppressive models of operation, specifically in migrant, people of colour, queer, trans and working-class spaces. At the same time, much of our communities’ identities are built around capitalist understandings of community spaces, which tap into historical and contemporary traumas. The Long Table is a dinner party where conversation is the only course. The components are simple: a long table, chairs, a paper tablecloth, pens with which to draw, make comments or scribble ideas, and an etiquette sheet – rules that lay the groundwork for a discussion that is structured without being limited. Tickets are free, but must be booked in advance on the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts website********Part of our New Queers on the Block: Brighton Weekender (6 – 9 Feb 2020) at Marlborough Pub & Theatre and Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts: http://bit.ly/newqueers_brighton2020
