The Time We Call Our Own: ‘if we can’t all dance, I don’t wanna be a part of ur world :))))’: Stephanie Francis-Shanahan

27 AUG 18:00-19:00 BST

LIVESTREAMED TO TWITCH.TV/OPENEYEGALLERY

REGISTER ON EVENTBRITE

 

Stephanie Francis-Shanahan is interested in joy, and how we can use it as a form of resistance to keep ourselves well. Before lockdown, she had started a series inviting people to come to her room, dress up in her wardrobe and dance to their favourite song whilst she documented it. Now, she’s inviting you to submit a 30-second video of you in your own home, which she’ll mix into a new work, ‘if we can’t all dance, I don’t wanna be a part of ur world :))))’, to be broadcast on 27th August.

 

Here’s how to take part:

 

“Before lockdown, I had started a series inviting people to come to my room, dress up in my wardrobe and dance to their favourite song whilst I documented it. Of course, this series had to stop and I wanted to figure out a way to capture this spirit. Additionally, having attended the London Black Lives Matter protests and witnessing such a mass of collective joy as resistance, it further reinforces my belief in the importance of dance and the need for our creative spaces to be shared and used collectively. I would like to invite you to be a part of this digital exploration of collective joy and movement by following the instructions below:

 

-record 30 seconds of you dancing in your bedrooms and state at the beginning the artist and title of the song you have chosen

 

-please feel free to dress up in whatever way makes you feel most comfortable (glam/trackies/fancy dress etc is all good)

 

-it can be recorded either portrait or landscape on whatever you are able to record on, camera quality is not important here just being able to see you enjoy yourself 🙂

 

-send it via wetransfer to s.francis-shanahan0620191@arts.ac.uk

 

These clips will then be edited into a film which can be a tool of inciting joy, enabling us to be strong and continue momentum for our long battle ahead for social change.”

 

Stephanie also encourages anyone watching or taking part to make a donation to Black Minds Matter UK: a project to connect Black individuals and families in the UK with free, professional mental health services.
