Art Arcana

The Dolls House Islington, 181 Upper St, N1 1RQ London


The internet seems to be fragmenting under the weight of what it once promised, connections fracturing. London is becoming a homogenised wasteland. Tower after tower after tower. Where is the real world? Our generation seems to be lacking a site, a location, a place to simply exist and talk and create.

There’s nothing quite like getting to know a new friend, collaborator or lover, is there? It’s never better than when you stand together, face to face, somewhere on the Borderland. Waiting for what will be, to be.

What possibilities await in no man's land, in the wasteland, where ghosts whisper the secrets of Borderland?

On Monday 27th June, immersive theatre pioneers and filmmakers, FoolishPeople would like to invite you to the first ART ARCANA, that celebrates the launch of our Borderland Season.

The event will offer a space for creatives to convene and experience an exhilarating evening of talks, art, discussion and intrigue blurred with immersive theatre. Guests may even find themselves exclusive surprises and hidden secrets along the way.

Guest speakers include Lucy Talbot (Death and the Maiden), Ian Vincent (Fortean Times), Dr Tereza Stehlikova (Royal College of Art and the University of Westminster) & John Harrigan (Artistic Director FoolishPeople).

BORDERLAND is a twelve month body of work featuring film, theatre, workshops and trans-media social events. Celebrating the geographical, spiritual, sexual and liminal threshold states inherent to all cultures, BORDERLAND seeks to define how humanity experiences borders and interacts via imagination, ecstasy, dream and reality.
