Sheila is speaking at Creative Climate on May 8th, a Symposium at Birkbeck Centre for Contemporary Theatre organised and chaired by Seda Ilter.  Sheila will be in conversation with Lisa Woynarski, discussing COMMON SALT. More info below...

Keynote Speakers:

Zoë Svendsen (Artistic Director, METIS)

Alan Simpson (Shadow Chancellor's Advisor on Sustainable Economics, previous Labour MP)

This one-day symposium explores new critical-creative responses to climate change in performance, and discusses performance as a space of engagement with and communication of the larger-than-human issue of climate crisis (particularly in relation to the post-political climate). The symposium aims to generate vigorous conversation through dialogue-panels in which artists and scientists/academics pair up and have a discussion following their individual talks about their works.
