Projects

Edible Women

Edible Women is a body of work that explores the fat body, dieting, control around food and how much of a mess Selina can get away with creating with an audience and a taste for excess.

It is a project which comprises of three performed works and one installation, which Selina has been making for the last three years. Many of the works span out of Selina’s research for her solo show Chewing The Fat, and a need to commemorate the stories she has collected from her own autobiography, from interviews with others and responses from works she has performed in the past.

As Wide And As Deep As The Sea

As Wide And As Deep As The Sea is a body of work exploring Black British Identity: how it is defined, the declining visibility of Black culture within the UK, and an analysis of where discourse currently stands within this country.

So far it’s seen Selina tour a giant ‘tumbleweave’ of hair across the UK, install 1000 questions about race in 6 cities, and create a new middle scale production called ‘salt.’ following a 2 month journey on a cargo ship across the Atlantic.

This body of work has seen us work with over 800 people, 14 commissioning and supporting partners and reach 3000 audience members.

The Job Centre Project

The Job Centre Project is a collection of works looking at unemployment, anger, and how ‘work’ has become a part of our self-esteem, a defining factor of our modern psyche. It is very much a work in progress, still shifting and growing until we find the right manifestation of it, but it’s a work that gets an audience on its feet, and takes them out into their cities.

So far, three works have been made – It Burns It All Clean, with the West Yorkshire Playhouse, £57.35 with FIERCE Festival, and These Ripples.
