10 pairs of tickets for 
MW Turner with Lamin Fofana: Dark Waters @ Tate Liverpool (LIVERPOOL)

Take a fresh look at JMW Turner in new exhibition Dark Waters. For the first time, Turner’s work will be presented within an immersive sound environment created by artist and musician, Lamin Fofana. Although creating work centuries apart, both artists convey the power and politics of the ocean and explore its relationship to capitalism and colonialism. Turner’s paintings focus on the dangers of the waters around the British coast and Fofana’s sound work looks across the Atlantic.The exhibition features some of Turner’s most celebrated seascapes alongside his sketchbooks and works on paper. Lamin Fofana translates the writing of pioneering black authors into sound. Fofana’s work explores questions of movement, migration, alienation and belonging.

10 pairs of tickets for Motherhood @ Unity Theatre (LIVERPOOL)

Part of Homotopia Festival 2022 The humorous dance performance Woman Hood explores different female worlds in four parts. It shows extraordinary and idiosyncratic female personalities who possess different types of power, who are “different” or simply step out of line. What does it mean to be a woman today? How should a woman be? How does she want to be? Is vulnerability the new strength? What distinguishes a sisterhood, a supportive network of women?   Inspired by Sara Ahmed’s book “Feminist Living!”(2017), the performance in the microcosm stage starts the attempt to create a feminist foundation based on strong female figures in a society that is still dominated by patriarchy.
