About the event

As part of our Re:Wild theme for the year, Maketank is very pleased to screen Madeline Shann's latest film The Spring,a screendance project, supported by Arts Council England, as well as Jerwood Arts & Yorkshire Dance through the Dance for Art's Sake artist development programme. Its focus is on bringing together human and non-human bodies to explore and celebrate the complexity of the natural world and our place in it. Modern life and our exploitation of the living world is made possible by our anthropocentricity, by our collective withdrawal from the natural world and a refusal to respect either its significance, or its limitations. We have lost so much of ourselves in this process, and have committed so much violence against the biosphere that we are well on the way to making the entire planet uninhabitable for all but a tiny handful of species. What happens if we reimagine our relationship with nature? What happens if we open ourselves up to the possibility of radically loving our home planet and the lives we share it with?

The short film will be followed by a Q&A with Ms. Shann.

At the request of the artist, to make this event as safe and inclusive as possible, the audience is encouraged to take a lateral flow test before attending, and must not attend if they have any flu-like symptoms. The wearing of face-coverings would be appreciated.

The Spring will also play on a loop in our storefront windows throughout the following week but this is the chance to hear it in full and ask questions of the director.
