Gemma Connell

The gathering of a year’s worth of work and practice development makes for a stimulating and intense experience. Gemma Connell, graduating on the MFA for Arts Society & Publics, describes her experience so far: “It’s been a very intense year, and we’ve all grown so much. I feel a million miles away from where I was in September. I think that a number of people on this course have something very special to share with the world.” You can read more about Gemma’s work and performances around the current British geopolitical landscape. 

Enjoy the show’s opening night on Friday August 18th, or during its opening days between August 19th – 27th.
