Natalie Raven, who is undertaking a practice-research PhD at Plymouth University, is premiering a new piece at the SPILL Festival of Performance. Created in 2007 by artist Robert Pacitti and produced by Pacitti Company, SPILL is now recognised as one of the world’s premier artist-led festivals of radical live work.

Natalie’s performance, La Sainte Trinité, questions the visual representation of female experience within the Christian faith. In it, historical images are appropriated, re-staged, reconfigured and re-lived in an attempt to oppose the stagnant death of the static art object.

Natalie’s doctoral research, funded by a Humanities & Performing Arts studentship, focuses on the relationships between body and cloth in live art practice. It is located within the Performance.Experience.Presence (P.E.P) research group and her Director of Studies is Professor Roberta Mock.

Tickets and passes for SPILL events are now on sale.
