DetailsFollowing an extensive callout for exciting, interdisciplinary LGBTQI+ performers, Ugly Duck presents @Disturbance on Tuesday November 30th. An evening showcase of radical international artists, @Disturbance has been programmed with both live and digital viewers in mind by Ugly Duck’s in-house panel of producers, artists and curators. @Disturbance support diversity, and under-represented bodies and voices in the arts. It intends to challenge power dynamics, offering a platform for new representations of genders, bodies, identities and sexualities.
Performances from Anthedemos, Nwakke, Puer Decorum and Kelvin Atmadibrata will be staged and livestreamed alongside video screenings and digital art from Laura Lynes with Billy Leach, Llewellyn Mngun and Jake Wood. This programme is being supported by Arts Council England and audiences can either attend in person or watch the livestream from anywhere in the world.
The Ugly Duck organisation is known for repurposing unused London spaces as well as supporting underrepresented voices and groups within the arts. Established in October 2012, they have converted a spacious, empty Victorian warehouse in SE1 into a busy creative space which became, and still is, home to countless rising and established artists.
