The time it takes me to get to you Magnetic North Festival/Subjects of History
Research has shown that live performance can generate shared emotional and somatic experiences, but what are the ethical implications of this? How does this relate to fascism, which political scientists have described as an embodied realm of politics? Can live performance nurture our capacity to respond creatively to far right movements?
At the 2019 Magnetic North Festival, Subjects of History Collective (Laura June Albert, mia susan amir, Alexa Solveig Mardon and Veronique West) presented a glimpse into the development of The time it takes me to get to you. This transdisciplinary, audience immersive performance explores the connection between co-presence and the rise of contemporary fascism.
