A Back to Earth LIVE programme exploring transformation, queerness, the wild, the natural and the unnatural, as well as, decolonial, Indigenous and submerged perspectives.
Queer Earth and Liquid Matters brings together artists, writers, filmmakers, sound and architecture practitioners to explore decolonial and queer ecologies. Highlighting different voices and experiences of the climate emergency, the programme aims to complicate the binaries of Western knowledge often encountered in the environmental discourse. Specifically, Queer Earth and Liquid Matters sheds light on land and water struggles, foregrounds queer/trans Indigenous embodiment in the Global South and around the world. It explores visions and experiences of apocalypse and amplifies Indigenous refusal and outrage at the consequences of extractive capitalism. The two-day programme features talks, performances, films, poetry and more.
