The Situation Room: Prejudice & Perception
8th December – 7.30pm
River Rooms, Somerset House
The situation room has always existed. This isn’t the first time. The room is not new. It’s an old place.
In an effort to better understand some of the fractures in our society, Fuel presents a gathering of creative and academic minds for an evening of conversation, performance, comedy, installation and live music, all woven together by the theme of Prejudice & Perception.
The Situation Room is a place for audiences, artists and researchers to talk about the big issues, to meet other minds and to be entertained.
It is a place for you.
Hosted by Nic Green (Trilogy), with performances, discussions and responses from Jess Thom (Tourettes Hero), Phoebe Davies (Bedfellows: Sex Re-Education), Manos Tsakiris (Royal Holloway and the Warburg Institute), Chardine Taylor-Stone (Black Girls Picnic), Melanie Wilson (Opera for the Unknown Woman), Lasana Harris (UCL), Magda Osman (QMUL), live scribing from Hawk & Mouse, music from Big Joanie and Roundhouse Resident Artist Jay Johnson.
It is likely that some peculiar ideas might emerge, we may make some changes, and we might disagree.
Bring a friend and an open mind.
Buy your tickets in advance via Paypal, cash payments only on the door. The bar for the evening will also be cash only.
