The festival invites audiences to “reflect on the past, consider the present and celebrate our hopes for the future” through performances and installations, conversations and ideas, food and drink.
Our three-part audio installation was produced by Fuel in response to archival research exploring women’s experiences of imprisonment and explores themes of maternity, solitude, and resistance while incarcerated.
- Rachel Mars, No Soft Place
