ANNIVERSARY - AN ACT OF MEMORY
LIVE STREAM PERFORMANCE BY MONICA ROSS
TUESDAY 1 MAY 2012
Lighthouse was pleased to support acclaimed artist Monica Ross in a live streamed performance of a solo recitation from memory of Act42 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
First performed solo by Ross to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Declaration in 2008, to date more than 500 Co-Recitors of all ages from different communities have memorised and publicly recited articles of significance to them in more than 40 languages including Act 36, a recitation primarily in British Sign Language, at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Wunderbar Festival 2011. The UK Tour 2011-2013 began in May 2011, marking a new phase of the project aimed at taking Acts 31-60 to different contexts throughout the UK from May 2011 – 2013, beginning with Act 31, a collective recitation in Queens Park, Brighton for Brighton Festival 2011.
