Future Park / FREE ENTRY
Friday 8 March 2019 – 7pm – Late
Future Park is Metal’s regular fast-paced evening for creative people working in any artistic discipline. It happens 4 times a year.
Each evening includes an invited guest speaker, a live performance plus 10 x 3 Minute Wonder presentations from writers, artists, makers, performers, designers and more. Anyone can take to the stage for 3 minutes to present a creative subject, performance or project of their choice.
Our guest speaker for this International Women’s Day special edition of Future Park is Katie Greenall. Fresh from a critically acclaimed run at the Vaults Festival of her first full-length show, FATTY FAT FAT she will perform an extract of the show, followed by a conversation about her motivations and process for making it. The work is a funny, frank and provocative solo show about living in a body the world tells you to hate.
Leave your diet books at the door.
