Theatre in the Mill are supporting the epic performance research project by Unfinished Business; Change My Mind. The project explores the human capacity for change and it’s impact on wellbeing, challenging seven very different artists (Leo Kay, Chin Keeler, Greg McLaren, Owen Craven-Griffiths AKA John Berkavitch, Emma Tornero, Jo Fong and Ria Hartley) to undertake a series of tasks, set for them by people surrounding their lives, in an attempt to undergo positive change.
Throughout the project the group are undertaking residencies across the country. They’ll be resident at The HUB in Leeds from 1st-5th September and invite you to join them for two exciting live events on 4th and 5th September.
1. Live Edit Installation - Thursday 4th September, 3pm - 7pm
You are invited to enter the space and watch as each artists takes to the stage and faced with a large projection of themselves, edits a ever evolving autobiographical film made up of footage taken from the three residencies that have taken place so far. Stay for as long as you like and witness the artists deliberate over what parts of themselves to keep and expose or to throw away and hide in a process that provides a unique insight into the artists' history and their individual creative processes.
2. Sharing and Discourse - Friday 5th September, 4.30pm - 7pm
This sharing has no form and no pre-decided content. It will probably include some sound/music developed in the week's residency, other performance expressions, dissemination of information surrounding the process and an opportunity to watch some of the autobiographical films. It will end with an informal feedback session, where we would love to invite your feedback on the project so far.

Spaces for the events are free, but you do need to book ahead by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
