Latent Commons is the umbrella title of a new live performance and moving image research project Williams initiated at the start of 2019.  Informed by the language and systems of archaeological excavations, compost, fungus and non-human relationships, it explores the possibilities of survival and connection in this time of political and environmental precarity.

Sun 8 Sept: 11am-1pm & 3pm-5pm
