Reflections and Connections – A Queer TV dinner by Beth Steventon-Crinks
It’s more or less the same as the things you said’ including a screening of The Battle of Tuntenhaus 1991
You are warmly invited to join us for an immersive and interactive Queer TV dinner and performance workshop, hosted by Beth Steventon-Crinks, within the cozy confines of our Living Room; nestled in the emptied Gala pool space at the historic Moseley Road Baths. This event forms part of Beth’s installation ‘Don’t you want days like these?’ which we welcome to our Living Room this September.
Our evening begins with Beth welcoming you to the space, before a captivating screening of ‘The Battle of Tuntenhaus’ (1991) by Juliet Bashore. Following the screening, you will be invited to explore the installation, pop up interaction points and a thought-provoking discussion centered around the film’s themes. This unique TV dinner experience aims to prompt us all to reflect upon our aspirations for the world, with a specific focus on housing, leisure, and community – a space where each attendee becomes a valuable expert in the discussion.
Your TV dinner will be thoughtfully catered by Change Kitchen. Renowned for their culinary excellence and commitment to social impact, ChangeKitchen CIC is a cherished local gem based in Balsall Heath. Guests are welcome to BYOB and is 18+.
