Join me & Professor Bronwen Morgan for a conversation about where Social Research meets Theatre

Mon, 24/11/2014

Pippa Bailey and Bronwen Morgan invite you to join them on a journey new to both of them: the place where theatre meets social research.

Where: 107 Projects, 107 Redfern Rd, Redfern - Sydney

When: 24 November, 5.30-7.30pm

Is there a connection between economic crisis, environmental crisis, the role of women and the performing arts? Pippa is exploring a new ‘fairtrade’ model for making international theatre. Sharing an unfinished script about a group of young people, focussed on a woman called Thyme. She is inviting anyone inspired by the story to make a new live version and interpret it locally. The BiDiNG TiME project asks: What is the role of hopeful creative processes at this time of global crisis? How do we transition from existing structures to different ones? Can new creative projects help lead social change? 

Bronwen is a socio-legal researcher, exploring creative economic initiatives that blend activism and social enterprise. These fashion innovative small-scale community-embedded ways to feed each other, move around, provide energy and reuse our all-too-pervasive 'stuff'. As Bronwen watched, over the last year, the idea of a 'sharing economy' take root and then mutate in strange and marvellous ways, she read into Pippa's script a mirror of her research subjects' dilemmas. And this was how they came to meet. 

Join us for a drink and conversation- about responding to climate change, theatre and performative social science; a meeting that points to the power of people and creative processes to transform perceptions, touch hearts and change minds.
