Bethlem Gallery

Dance performance of PIGEONS by Julie Cunningham & Company

Saturday 24 February 2024
14:00 to 15:00

Join Bethlem gallery for a public performance of JCC's brand new work, PIGEONS, in the chapel located across from the gallery, followed by a Q&A. FREE tickets are available via the booking form on this page. Thank you to the Chaplain for the use of the chapel.

PIGEONS explores themes of queerness and marginalised identities, and joins in with celebrations to mark LGBTQ+ History Month.

The idea of this work began in lockdown when Cunningham’s thoughts about Julius Eastman and pigeons collided. PIGEONS is a 30 minute dance performed by Harry, Yu-Chien and Jules alongside the music of Julius Eastman, a black gay man from New York composing in the 1960s, 70s and 80s. Much of Eastman’s work was lost, his work sidelined within the whiteness of minimalist music.

Learn more about JCC and PIGEONS on their website, and book your FREE ticket for the performance on the Eventbrite page.
