Gasp! Exploring breathlessness through creative arts (panel discussion)

November 24, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Join researchers from the Life of Breath project for a panel discussion alongside an installation artist, puppeteer, musician and writer exploring breath and breathlessness in their work. The panel will include talks as well as some performative elements.

Dr Alice Malpass from the Life of Breath project and Elspeth Penny, an arts and health specialist, will share themes arising in creative writing workshops in which participants are invited to write a letter to their breath. Chris Pirie, Green Ginger’s Artistic Director, will talk about the role of breath in puppetry and then show some works in progress with collaborator and writer Elspeth Penny and musician Paul Bradley. Experience the art installation Suspended Breath and hear Louise Jenkins, its creator, talk about how the piece was developed from letters respiratory patients have written to their breath. You can even add your own ‘breath signature’.


For event information, please contact Elspeth Penny at elspeth@2buproductions.co.uk.
