The Breaking The Mould season
New paradigms emerge when old patterns are interrogated, challenged, and even destroyed. In our Breaking The Mould season we invite you to join us for an eclectic programme of events, which demonstrate the extraordinary creativity that results from such acts of disruption.
The eponymous exhibition, which showcases the work of over 40 British women sculptors, challenges and radically recalibrates the gendered art historical narrative of post-war sculpture. In all areas of creative practice, periods of political and social unrest have led to the breaking of old patterns and forging of new ones, as showcased in our continued celebration of Expressionism in theatre, film, music and the visual arts.
Theatre company Dam Van Huynh triumph with their innovative use of movement, light, sound and voice to explore a personal experience of displacement and reinvention, whilst a wide range of talks, a live-scored film, a sound bath, and a writing workshop all invite us to explore what ‘breaking the mould’ might mean to us, and perhaps even forge some new exciting insights and reinventions.
