Spirit Labour screening at Green-Wood, New York, 21 September 2019

Participants will enjoy an outdoor screening of Spirit Labour. In this moving and poetic film, Hugo Glendinning and Adrian Heathfield follow the creative practice of sculptor and performance artist Janine Antoni: her collaborations and conversations with the choreographer Anna Halprin and the writer Hélène Cixous. Spirit Labour traces the trans-generational connections between these artists who work with the female body and the natural elements. It asks: what kind of labour is it, to dedicate your life to working with the movements, expressions and affects of others?

This programme is presented as part of Janine Antoni’s I am fertile ground.
