They Gather

‘They Gather’ is an ongoing international collaborative, multimodal, interdisciplinary project, creating ‘gatherings’ of people, action, movement, and sound. The project consists of a growing series of independent but interrelated performances (modules) that explore the boundaries between audience, participant and performer, creating dialogue with environments, societies, politics, histories and speculative futurologies. The project aims to empower and open dialogues around the complexities and polarities of contemporary living.

‘They Gather’ is co-created and co-produced by Bridget Fiske (UK/AU) & Joseph Lau (UK/AU) with Stelios Manousakis (NL/GR) & Stephanie Pan (NL/US).
