Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival

— The Cube
film viewing + discussion with Matana Roberts, Kelly Jayne Jones and Teresa Dillon
price: Headfirst Tickets


Ticket for film screening £6
Joint playthecube ticket with Friday night show £14

Screened as part of the Matana Roberts & Kelly Jayne Jones playthecube residency, 'Story Telling For Earthly Survival' is a crafty documentary portrait of the highly original thinker Donna Haraway, whose work around gender, identity and technology sinks into difficult universal issues, capturing hope where it might seem to be lost.

This dazzling and funny film captures the gifted storyteller/thinker at her home in California, using magical staging to emphasise the playful, cerebral sensitivity of a scientist who wishes to flatten interspecies hierarchies. Donna is the author of classic socialist-feminist essay 'The Cyborg Manifesto' and 'Staying With The Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene' among countless other key works, and Fabrizio Terranova's tender framing allows her to speak in her own realities and science-fictions.

The screening is followed by an informal discussion with the playthecube artists led by Teresa Dillon, Professor of City Futures at UWE, exploring the intersection of Haraway's ideas with their own idiosyncratic hybrid art practices.
