Raptures of the deep: free-diving film night

November 23, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Free-divers can seem like super humans. They have extraordinary, seemingly implausible, control over their bodies, particularly their breathing, and offer a fascinating insight into the connection between mind and body. A series of short films featuring record breakers including Johanna Nordblad and Guillaume Néry and our guest Liv Philip, will set the scene. Then we’ll discuss why the experience of losing the breath can both terrifying and exhilarating with champion freediver Liv Philip, artist Emma Critchley and researchers Rebecca Oxley and Arthur Rose.

Seating allocated on a first come, first served basis. Doors open 6pm. Refreshments will be available.


This event is part of the series Who do you think we are?
