Protest Archive is an intergenerational feminist and activist project by Caroline Campbell (Loitering Theatre). This project has been developed with a loose affiliation of women across the island of Ireland who have been active in radical political protest from the 1960's to today. Significantly, this archive of bodily gestures extends through feminist practice into modes of anti-imperialism and actions of solidarity far beyond the island where its bodies are located.
Grey Eminence is a zoom workshop and guided performance that will be Loitering Theatre's first activation of the Protest Archive. The workshop will include the first readings of texts from the Protest Archive. Contributors include poet and activist Sarah Clancy, and selected avatars. The workshop will be moderated by Megs Morley.
The Grey Eminence workshop will also investigate the power of the body and the activist gesture in protest. In times where the movement of our bodies through public space have been restricted in order keep our community healthy and safe, the workshop will work creatively with the disembodied aesthetics of Zoom.
Zoom talks will be live-captioned with Otter ai.
