The LIVE program of May edition of the Grand re Union project will be held on Friday, 14 May on Zoom platform under the title “Disrupting Discomfort – In Conversation With You”.
Being in discomfort is inherently… uncomfortable. Urges rapidly emerge to quell said discomfort. What about longer lasting discomforts, or discomforts which we don’t have the ability to simply dispel? Or discomforts resulting from a change in, or reduction of habituated comforts and freedoms, such as during this pandemic. Or the discomfort that comes with confronting long-standing social injustices? Change is not always comfortable, even when one is aware that the outcome could be beneficial personally, or even globally.
