What does joyousness look like as a political performance strategy? Can joy or beauty be radical forms of protest? Or should resistance by its very nature be painful? Come and MEGA-LOL in the face of adversity or simply sob-chuckle into your laps. Let us bask in the light, plight and darkness of these incredible artists as they attempt to illuminate and embolden us.
Curated by Hackney Showroom Artistic Director Sam Curtis Lindsay and Associate Artist Malik Nashad Sharpe, JOY & DISSENT is an exuberant festival of live performance across dance, comedy, drag, spoken word, live art, physical theatre & workshops.
