UEL’s MA students in Performing Arts present twilight performances set around a live fired kiln in an industrial courtyard. Based on their findings into histories of brick, brick building and dwelling in the borough, and using the humble brick as the object of performance, students explore connections between building methods of the past and our present infrastructure.

Themes include the historic role of women and children as brick-makers; Mesopotamian rituals of brick-building; confessions of bricks lodged in time-worn walls; visual studies of brick-making processes; and, provocations around present day housing equality, planned obsolescence and ecology. Amusing, wry and discerning these performances bring the relevance of our making histories to bear on our present lived environments.

You will also see our traditional clamp kiln being fired as we burn 1000 bricks made by local residents from clay dug in Newham.
