Both Diakrousi and verdijk live and work in Rotterdam, a major port city like Liverpool; their project is fed by the ways in which the two ports interrelate. Taking inspiration from cutting edge research into algae forms conducted by a band of formidable women in Liverpool in the early 20th Century, Weedweavers explores feminist and non-traditional science practices, myths, recipes and stories of ports and organisms like algae through gatherings in June, culminating in a live broadcast.
Gatherings as part of Weedweavers will take place 18 June and 25 June. Tune into andfestival.org.uk/live to experience the final performance on Friday 9 July. The recording of the performance will be available to watch online until Sunday 11 July.
Weedweavers by Angeliki Diakrousi and mariëlle verdijk is commissioned and produced by Abandon Normal Devices, curated by New Emergences. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England and Creative Industries Fund Netherlands.
