Nomadic curatorial partnership Hot Desque are committed to showing emerging and established artists within site-specific exhibitions, with an aim to provide a platform for experimentation and interdependence.

Their latest work, Terrestrial Act, comes to Newcastle’s Theatre Royal and aims to evoke a future-past post-human landscape questioning the way we ‘act’ within the natural world. Audiences are invited to step onto the stage to uncover the terrestrial terrain and the lives of microscopic organic matter which populates the empty stage, devoid of actors.

Terrestrial Act explores the dynamics between the organic and synthetic, from 3-D printed biodegradable saplings to mic’d up clay bubbling, with artworks pointing towards the role humans play in altering the terrain around us. Exhibiting artists include Sam Carvosso, Anna Reading, Davinia-Ann Robinson, Hannah Rowan, Harry Smithson and Giorgio van Meerwijk.

Following on from the one-day exhibition, which takes place on Saturday 4th September, a collaborative film will be screened at the NewBridge Project’s new space in Shieldfield later in the year.
