Introducing Louise Orwin our Live Art Development Agency DIY Artist for 2020

LADA DIY 2020 is supported by Game Play Festival, with funding from Arts Council England's Project Grants and The Foyle Foundation

A quick introduction to Louise Orwin & the project

Brave New Worlds wants you to be a teenager again.

It wants you to build universes from your bedrooms.

It wants to know what your utopia looks like, and who you are in it.

Brave New Worlds invites you on a deep dive into the world of online teenage role play and DISCORD servers. Under the mentorship of real life teenage discord role players, participants will build their own Live Art Community Discord server and digital universe and undertake 48 hours of durational online role play to ask what we can learn about ourselves and our work from these online practices. 

Standing on the precipice of re-building ourselves and our worlds post COVID19, can we make like teenagers, and begin to imagine brave new worlds for ourselves from our bedrooms?

“startling and resonant”
— The Stage


“brave, taboo-breaking work”
— Lyn Gardner, Guardian


“demands and deserves to be seen”
— Exeunt

Louise makes research-based performance and video projects about what it means to identify as a queer femme, in a world that prizes masculinity, straightness, whiteness. Her work is provocative, political, slippery, and guaranteed to get under your skin.
