Tees Women Poets perform this weekend at mima

7 October 2014

A new and immersive experience of ARTIST ROOMS Louise Bourgeois: A Woman Without Secrets is on offer in the final weekend of the exhibition here at mima.

Tees Women Poets will perform Women Without Secrets on Saturday 11 October, in response to the themes within the current exhibition.

The group Tees Women Poets has been established by England’s leading performance poetry and spoken word organisation Apples and Snakes to develop the performance skills of women poets living or working in the wider Teesside area, and they have recently been mentored to create new work in response to the exhibition.

Working with local theatre company Precious Cargo, the group has devised a collaborative performance which will take place in the gallery itself. It will offer audiences an immersive experience, and a new way of looking at the artwork on show in the exhibition. The event will also feature a headline set from North East born spoken work performer Sophia Blackwell, and a performance from award-winning local poet Sheree Mack.

Admission to mima and its exhibitions will remain free as usual on Saturday. There will be two showings of the event on Saturday 11 October, at 2pm and 3pm. Tickets for the event cost £4, and can be booked via the Apples and Snakes eventbrite page here. The cost of the event will include refreshments and a booklet of printed poems for those in attendance.

The event has been organised by Apples and Snakes, and is funded by mima Visual Arts Network. Find out more about mima Visual Arts Network here.
