IBT15 : Jo Bannon : Alba

Friday 13 February 2015, 11:00 to 12:00

Drawing on her experience as a person with albinism, Jo Bannon reveals the myths we inherit, the myths we embody and the identities we cannot shake off.

“I was born on the day the Pope came to Coventry, my home town. In my family my unexpected appearance was perceived as a blessing. A sublime gift.”

Alba unpicks a tangle of stories: the stories we tell of ourselves and the stories told about us.

Experience an extraordinary visual poem, created with blinding light, proximity, movement and sound.

‘A candid, powerful and moving self-portrait’ – Exeunt. 

 

Commissioned and produced by In Between Time with Ovalhouse & Pink Fringe.
