Body Arcana Performance


From Free - £10


Fri 20 May 2022 19:00

With Lesley Asare
Running Time: 1 hour with a Q & A after the performance

A series of large-scale drawings created by Lesley Asare through movement with her body and oil bars on paper. Each drawing begins with the question “if my body could speak, what would it say?” This question acts as a springboard for the discovery of current life lessons and resources that the body holds through movement.

Asare’s work explores identity, personal histories and the experiences of Black Women/Women of Colour and aims to create a space for play, self-reflection, self-awareness, empowerment and healing.
