Of Bensham and the Return is a text originally written and performed on the occasion, and in the midst, of moving back to the place where I was born.
The performance was first presented at the Shipley Art Gallery in Bensham (Gateshead) as part of CIRCA Projects and Giles Bailey’s FESTIVAL IS SUDDEN event for TUSK Festival 2017.
Of Bensham and the Return was subsequently exhibited as a performance and printed text in the Women Artists of the North East Library show at Workplace Gallery (Gateshead, 2018). A sequel to the work was performed in the gallery on August 23rd 2018.
