Micro-acts of Activism
Micro-acts of Activism 2021
Beatrice Allegranti has been working with a team of dance, spoken word artists and a musician to create and curate micro-acts of activism. Inspired by Soyini Madison’s story of local activists in South Saharan Africa who employ modes of performance as tactics of resistance and intervention in their day-to-day struggles for human rights, this work is as an extension of the Moving Kinship project. Born out of the pandemic, this short film offers a glimpse into the bespoke performances and original music created for people living with rare young onset dementia. During lockdown we reached people online in their living rooms.
More will follow and be posted here throughout 2021 as we begin to emerge as post-pandemic people.
