Elaine performs at SPILL Festival 2016
The eighth edition of SPILL Festival is back in Ipswich and across five days in October unleashing a big friendly beast of a programme – over 100 events spanning live performance, installation, gigs, film, discussions, parties and more.
SPILL Festival of Performance is an international festival of live art, activism and performance presenting the work of exceptional artists from around the globe.
Created in 2007 by performance maker Robert Pacitti and produced by Pacitti Company, SPILL Festival is recognised worldwide as the UK’s premier artist-led festival of radical live work.
This edition’s overarching festival theme is EN MASSE, exploring ideas of being together, as a group, all at once.
Elaine is one of the Spotlight Artists of this edition presenting the UK premiere of Of Leonardo da Vinci by David Toop with visuals by Barry Lewis and directed by Dam Van Huynh. She will also premiere a durational work [NAMES] inspired by her current research and focusing on the names enslaved Africans were forced to take.
