Tonight We Fly

We are pleased to announce that Lock Her Up will be appearing as part of a three-day festival in Leeds, Tonight We Fly, from Wed 31 Oct – Sat 03 November 2018.

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
  • Sabrina Mahfouz, This is How it Was
  • Paula Varjack, In the Times After the Raids

For Tonight We Fly, the installations will be in the highly atmospheric location of the old police cells under Leeds Town Hall. Dr Rachel Bennett will also be participating in the Wound Back: Being Conscious of the Past talk on Weds 31 October 6-7pm.

All tickets are pay what you decide, in cash at the end. Download the Leeds Tonight We Fly Programme.

The festival, a collaboration between Fuel, The Holbeck, Leeds International Film Festival, Leeds Library, Leeds Town Hall, Live Art Bistro, Slung Low, Transform, and University of Leeds. It is supported by Leeds Playhouse and the Wellcome Trust.
