Vincent Dance Theatre is hosting HOME TRUTHS a multi-screen film installation in Artspace Arcadia Gallery, Coventry from 19 – 23 November 2021. We would be delighted if you could join us to test out the work and tell us what you think.

Drawing from VDT’s productions IN LOCO PARENTIS (2020) and ART OF ATTACHMENT (2018),HOME TRUTHSis the result of Vincent’s research with care-experienced young people and the adults in their lives, and with women in recovery from substance misuse and domestic violence. HOME TRUTHS explores notions of home, family and belonging and considers the impact of trauma on women’s and young people’s lives.

Whilst providing a space to engage with and listen to the voices of those who often remain unheard, HOME TRUTHS also offers a creative space to consider the emotional labour involved (by family intervention practitioners, child psychotherapists, social workers, parents, foster carers) in their support of the vulnerable communities represented in the work. 

Sign up for a free 2-hour session to see the film installation and help us test the creative workshop activities that accompany the work. We want to hear what you have to say!

Event Audience: 16+ unless accompanied by an adult. Workshops are open to the general public, but may be of particular interest to those affected by the issues or professionals who work with people affected by the issues.

Facilitated / Directed by Charlotte Vincent | Filmed / Edited by Bosie Vincent | Composer Jules Maxwell

ART OF ATTACHMENT was originally commissioned by Oasis Project and funded by Wellcome Trust and Arts Council England Lottery Funding. HOME TRUTHS is supported by academic collaborator Dr Cath Lambert, Assistant Professor of Sociology in the Department of Sociology at the University of Warwick, funded by an ESRC Impact Acceleration Award, supported by the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender at the University of Warwick and by Arts Council England, through VDT’s regular National Portfolio Organisation funding.
