I’m going to embarrass myself this Saturday by performing a Karaoke version of Sara Ahmed’s “Feminist Killjoys” to the tune of Chiquitita (I haven’t called it Critiquita, but gosh that seems like a missed opportunity now). Details below.
Join us as we mark the closing of Re-collections with Crit-a-Oke – a free cabaret event featuring live performances, projections and karaoke.
Crit-a-Oke feels like a late night party lecture. Squashing art criticism, theory and academic texts into a karaoke blender and sipping on the thinky musical smoothie that drips from the other side.
Think Donna Summer and the S.C.U.M. Manifesto.
Ask, “Does your Mother Know” about John Berger?
Get thoughtful and dancey all at once as Sheffield’s artists and thinkers perform their favourite arty texts as you’ve never heard them, to the songs that you (probably) know.
Specially created visuals projected during the performances will reference Site’s lifespan from 1979 to the present, with contributions from Society of Explorers.
Performing on the night:
- Sarah Christie
- Matthew Cull
- Oriana Franceschi
- Caitlin Merrett King & Josef Shanley Jackson
- Miriam Miller
- Zoyander Street
- Lucy Vann
Kollective Coffee and Kitchen will be open late serving refreshments.
Crit-a-Oke is brought to you by Tžužjj – a curatorial project between Louis Palliser-Ames and James Harper.
