Proposition For Making A Silent Opera At An Invisible Museum / Thinking Posture
Li-E Chen is developing a silent opera on the life and work of Tehching Hsieh. As part of the China Changing festival at the Southbank Centre, Chen will be leading a number of workshops, including one on authoring a draft libretto ‘in the form of propositions for thinking and action’. Chen will also be presenting a parallel workshop that uses the act of learning to write and speak specific Mandarin words and characters as a way for participants to think about their own ‘Thinking Posture’. She invites artists to join her and the public in the first stage of this year-long research project.
Saturday 7 October 2017, 1pm, Royal Festival Hall, Level 3, Function Room, Blue side, Southbank Centre, London SE1.

InspiralLondon Festival 2017 – Kent Connections
InspiralLondon is an artist-conceived walking route divided into 36 segments. Beginning in the centre of London it spirals out and ends in Kent, making unexpected connections between places and taking in less commonly trodden paths along the way. For the 2017 festival, four days are given over to talks, walks and workshops around radical politics, planning laws and the outdoor experience, with a focus on the final sections of the trail.
12-15 October, Various Locations within London and Gravesend.
