Tuesday 23rd September Opening event

Festival of Choice 2014

7.00pm – The Peckham Pelican – 92 Peckham Road, SE15 5PY London

HYSTERIA presents, along with the Festival of Choice, a hysterical event at The Peckham Pelican, starting at 7pm.

The Festival of Choice seeks to raise awareness about the current lack of abortion rights for women found throughout the world. Together, with other feminist organisations, we hope to engage in the pro-choice conversation and advocate women’s right to safe and legal abortion globally.

HYSTERIA presents a performance video by HELENA WALSH, a performance/talk by FANNIE SOSA and an interactive installation by AMA JOSEPHINE BUDGE.

Helena Walsh is a performance artist from Speaking of IMELDA – a direct action feminist performance group challenging the ongoing problem of I.M.E.L.D.A. (Ireland Making England the Legal Destination for Abortion).

Artist, Fannie Sosa, based in Paris, works with elements of physical theatre and dance, live music, performance and video art. At opening of the Festival of Choice, she will be presenting on TWERKING, exploring the taboo dimension of the «ghetto of the body» through speech and movement -linking this dance form to pro-choice, and abortion debates.

You can also join Fannie for an interactive workshop before the launch event:
“Through speech and movement ; between otherness and identity ; individual and collective ; we practice unifying our intimate body (comfortable, sexual, relaxed) with our public body (efficient, alert, racial).”
£10 online, £12 on the door for two incredible hours!
