THE WORK WE SHARE: Loss of Heat at Brighton CCA

ONLINE AND IN-PERSON EVENTS

28 Apr — 30 Apr 2022

At Brighton CCA and online

A three day programme with Brighton CCA hosting the newly digitised film, Loss of Heat by Noski Deville (UK, 1994, 20mins) and a new, live performance created in collaboration between Nicola Singh and Noski Deville inspired by the work.

Loss of Heat is an evocative portrayal of queer love that challenges preconceived notions on the ‘reality’ of living with the invisible disability of epilepsy. It is a poetic, immersive interpretation exploring the interplay of the emotional and the physical, across boundaries of sexuality, dependence and desire.

Cinenova have invited partners to support the screening programme through a series of workshops that continue a commitment of feminist filmmaking as a tool and framework for community cohesion, consciousness-raising and anti-racist education.

Taking inspiration from Noski Deville’s Loss of Heat this workshop invites you to explore and experiment with found imagery, collage materials, and slide projections to visualise a dream, memory, or something in-between. This workshop will build on process rather than outcome and touch on ideas surrounding creative play and futures, intuition, and queerness.

Anyone who identifies as queer/ LGBTQIA+ is invited to sign-up for the workshop, please email Polly Wright

This is an in-person workshop and will be held at Brighton CCA: Dorset Place, 6 Dorset Place, Brighton, BN2 1ST. All materials will be provided.
