HERVISIONS at LUX will be hosting Danielle Braithwaite-Shirley’s walkthrough of their interactive game Speaking Through Plastic (2020) which revives and archives untold stories of Black Trans bodies in the pandemic.
Speaking Through Plastic (2020) is a game that follows the quarantining of Black Trans bodies after all Black Trans people in history have been resurrected. It is seen as a pandemic, and whilst they are interrogated behind closed doors protest rage outside in defence of their freedom. There are those that are willing to risk their own lives for the future of others.
Join us on 20 August at 7pm for a walkthrough guided by Danielle Braithwaite-Shirley and streamed on LUX YouTube Channel. Register via Eventbrite to receive a link to join the event online.
Speaking Through Plastic marks the penultimate of OUT of TOUCH Part 3, a series of events and performances evolved to reinvent the new vocabulary of touch in the post-touch world. Through a constellation of femme-focused dialogues, OUT of TOUCH by HERVISIONS probes ways in which screen-based dialogues remediate the lack of touching in the absence of physical connection.
