Queer the landscape! Walking-songwriting from Melrose to Lindisfarne.

Monday 22nd October, 5pm

The Deaf Institute, Grosvenor Street, M1 7HE

A session led by Oblique Curiosities (www.obliquecuriosities.com) (Sarah E. Truman and David Ben Shannon)

This session contextualises a five-day walking-songwriting research-creation project called Queer the Landscape.

The project attends to intersectional concerns of race, gender, and dis/ability in determining what kinds of bodies are allowed to walk where in Brexit-era Britain. The resulting ten queer sonic cultures (songs) represent and more-than-representationally intensify the relations we were part of while walking the border between Scotland and England.

This session will be led by glitch-folk band, Oblique Curiosities (Sarah E. Truman and David Ben Shannon), and will include a paper, excerpts from some of the ten cultures, and an interactive song-writing/ karaoke session. The whole evening will be thoroughly lubricated by negronis and The Deaf Institute’s range of cask-ales.
