Part of the Radical Ancestry season

The performance interweaves the 2004 Morecambe Bay cockling disaster and 2021 Atlanta spa shootings tragedy with the classic children’s story, We’re Going On a Bear Hunt, and symbols from Korean mythology. Yellow Furry Lullaby is a ritual and moment of collective healing performed alongside Fermented Flower (2021), a detailed tapestry by the artist duo that confronts the racist roots deeply embedded in the field of botany.

Breakwater is Youngsook Choi and Taey Iohe. Based in London, the Korean diaspora duo explore social practice across subject matters around climate justice and migrants’ lived experience.
