Emilia Galotti’s Colouring Book of Feelings
Performance and Installation
Emilia Galotti’s Colouring Book of Feelings is a queer-feminist multimedia performance piece, a conceptual closet drama that stages imagined tête-a-têtes with Enlightenment thinkers, writers, and pseudo-scientists using poetic text, dialogue, choreography, installation, recordings, and projections. Challenging the Enlightenment’s opposition of sentiment and rationality, the piece harnesses the experimental spirit of things that don’t quite work and are thus exactly right and fizzingly oblique, toying with our assumptions about seriousness, hospitality, domesticity, difficulty, form, and fun.
Written and conceived by Sophie Seita.
Performed by Emma Attwood, Celine Lowenthal, Nisha Ramayya, Erin Robinsong, Sophie Seita and Jocelyn Spaar.
Costumes in muslin and reed by Kat Addis. Magister and Narrator costumes by Ciara Phillips (2018), screen-print on canvas
Projections by Simone Kearney, music by r. Karim, video by Lanny Jordan Jackson—all made in response to Seita’s text.
Producer: Olivia Carr-Archer
