longing: A strong persistent yearning or desire, especially one that cannot be fulfilled
belonging: the state of being comfortable and accepted in a place or community

Helen Paris and Leslie Hill are known for their edgy, humorous interrogations of contemporary culture and politics, work that has been called “as smart as it is seductive” (Irish Times). In this production, Hill and Paris share personal stories of longing and belonging against two contrasting backdrops: the searing landscape of the desert with its seemingly limitless curve of sky mirroring the infinite unfulfilled nature of longing; and a landscape you can hold in the palm of your hand – discreet, hidden, private. The 10oz site of longing itself, the heart.

Proceeds from the October 31 performance will go to the WISH Drop-In Centre. This performance is not available on subscription.

(be)longing is an Artsadmin project commissioned by The Women’s Library, London Metropolitan University and the Vancouver East Cultural Centre, Canada with support from Arts Council England, Brunel University and SMARTLab Digital Media Institute, University of East London.
