We are happy to announce that the Future Others project developed in collaboration with Eleni Ikoniadou has been selected for the European Capital of Culture 2023 programme in Elefsina, Greece. The proposed interactive installation + performance piece draws on existing traditions, such as Greek tragedy and the Elevsinian mysteries. Through the act of collective mourning for our losses during the time of global grief and crisis, the lament from the future becomes an incubator of solidarity, community and joy.

With our friends, we organised White Tunnel Commensality to bring together near-death experiences, mourning and social practice of sharing food. Near-death experiences appear to unfold in transient, irrational realms in which behaviours, thoughts, memories, instincts and desires are freed from individual and social boundaries and repressions. We evoke this fantastic realm through a commensal event, letting go of individuality through sharing food and interacting through sharing abstract and absurd narratives.
A course designed to inspire, broaden and challenge the possibilities of spatial representation and design. It applies the toolbox of performance in architectural thinking, towards the production of spatial actions and bodily geometries in space.
Conceived in association with VIPA and RIPS, the Performance Architecture Online Summer School runs over four weekends with a 3-hour class (10:00–13:00 BST) each Saturday. Check out our website for the next online course in late January and early February 2021.
