What: ‘We’re Reclaiming Dyke Completely’: Legacies of the Lesbian Sex Wars

Where: Jerwood Visual Arts

When: Monday 26th 

What happens when images, ideas and aesthetics are recycled, without retaining the beliefs or highlighting the context that gave them their initial charge? What happens when communities simultaneously forget and rediscover a shared history? This talk considers the Sex Wars as a turning point for organised feminism and places them against a renewed interest in feminist politics and lesbian iconography.

What: Electra

Where: Bunker Theatre 

When: Tuesday 27th - 24th March

After their mother kills their treacherous father and take up with another man, Electra and her brother Orestes vow to get their revenge. Two decades later, a twist of fate brings them both together again, united by hate but divided by faith. With the country on the brink of civil war, the most powerful family in the Kingdom are torn apart from the inside as their dark past once again becomes the present. DumbWise reinvent the murderous Greek myth of power and prophecy as a lyrical modern epic with a live punk-rock score.

What: Dana Klisanin - Heroism & Everything 

Where: ICA

When: Wednesday 28th 

Dana Klisanin, the founder and CEO of Evolutionary Guidance Media is a pioneer of consciousness hacking. She argues that the new, multidisciplinary field of 'heroism science' is poised to help us and in this talk will explore this open, participatory, embodied science, in which the arts play a vital role: it calls for an expansion of the heroic imagination and supports the evolution of myth. In the 21st century, wanting everything may mean finding midi-chlorians in the form of the 'hero gene,' using our smartphones as light sabers and recognizing activists—social, economic, environmental—as the heroes of a new, collaborative era. We're not quite sure what this all means, but we're keen to find out.

What: Ibeyi 

Where: Electric Brixton

When: Wednesday 28th 

We’ve long been massive fans of Ibeyi, a duo made up of twin sisters Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz — a fandom which only increased with the release of last year’s Ash, an album full of transcendent moments, muscular and fragile all at the same time. Their live show is something to behold too. We last saw Ibeyi perform last at Shoreditch Town Hall and were left totally bewitched. Wild horses couldn’t drag us away from the opportunity to see them again.
