The Go Away Bird – A Creative Response
June 27 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
A public sharing of a creative response to Spark’s novella The Go Away Bird, developed by performance artists Belle Jones and Beldina Odenyo.
Set in South Africa in the early 20th century The Go Away Bird touches on many issues such as race, violence against women and exploitation which are still hugely relevant today. This response looks at presenting the story against the historical backdrop of South Africa during that period and in the subsequent years up until this centenary year of both Sparks’ and Nelson Mandela’s birth.
The sharing takes the form of an installation, using found objects, photographs, film footage and live music.
