Weft Wool: How many underground layers are in this route sustaining the present?
A street performance that uses the materiality of wool to encourage new ways of relating to public spaces, and to the bodies that have lived in these territories. Emergent bodies interrogate the present through weaving and embroidery in a journey of collective transformation.
