Action Research Together:
“Meme-ify: An Attempt To Dance Through Pain with Humour.”

10am - 1pm (BST)

As part of "Wake Up and Smell Tear Gas" residency with Young Blood Initiative and commissioned by Framer Framed (NL), we are hosting this two-day action research on not only the strategies that artists are taking in activism, but also ways for us to combat our activist fatigue. We are investigating how this translation from journal images to meme can be a tool for devising performance.

BOOM BOOM BOOM. HERE WE MAAAAAAAAARCH ON.



Watch us trapped in this tank and we continue to RESIST. We are tired but we are never exhausted. We may be four but we are many as we multiply through dimensions that you hold in your palm.

Watch us live or watch us online. We are here in this street shop while you stare at us through the shop window, like a kid staring at a cake. Or maybe we are on your screen at the corner of your desk, like the fish tank at your grandpa’s home.

This performance is the aftermath of action research called “Meme-ify: An Attempt To Dance Through Pain with Humour”, where we explore humour as a strategy to combat absurdity and activist fatigue.
