HOW TO BUILD A HOPE MACHINE

HOW TO BUILD A HOPE MACHINE

start date: 2020-03-14 | finish date: 2020-03-14

Things don’t have to be sh**. But utopia ain’t gonna build itself. Join Dr Duckie – aka Ben Walters – for a call to arms, based on his doctoral research with queer performance collective Duckie.

It’s about the neoliberal wobble, the technology of queer fun, and doing family differently. It’sabout the power of homemade mutant hope machines – ways of thinking, feeling and acting that let people without clout build better worlds – right here, right now – one day, one show, one dance at a time.

It’s an hour-long talk with a glamorous assistant and a bit of back-and-forth. It’s full of ideas inspired by Duckie’s work with young LGBTQ+ performers, homeless people and older people, and it’s relevant to anyone wanting to crack on with utopia.
