AND Festival 2021 \\ Weedweavers (final performance)

In Weedweavers, the radical Dutch curatorial collective New Emergences present a collaborative workshop and live event led by artists Angeliki Diakrousi and mariëlle verdijk.  Both Diakrousi and verdijk live and work in Rotterdam, a major port city like Liverpool; their project is fed by the ways in which the two ports interrelate. Taking inspiration from cutting edge research into algae forms conducted by a band of formidable women in Liverpool in the early 20th Century, Weedweavers explores feminist and non-traditional science practices, myths, recipes and stories of ports and organisms like algae through gatherings in June, culminating in a live broadcast.
