Lucy Beech and Edward Thomasson's practice spans video and performance.  As two of Britain's most exciting young artists they work both independently and collaboratively and together their work explores what constitutes performance outside of conventional theatre.

Beech and Thomasson have composed a unique programme of their most recent video works including Lucy Beech’s Results that Move You and Edward Thomasson’s Open Your Mouth, as well as documentation of the artists’ collaborative live work, Passive Aggressive 2 (all 2014). Following the screening, the artists will be joined in conversation with writer Jonathan P Watts.  The event is programmed to coincide with Lucy Beech’s solo exhibition Me and Mine on show at the Harris until 4th July.
