2.00pm-5.00pm – Launch event at Space Station Sixty-Five.
Space Station Sixty-Five is delighted to invite you to an afternoon of informal discussions and readings to launch the book Adventures in Kate Bush and Theory by Deborah M. Withers.
Drawing on cutting edge feminist philosophy, critical theory and queer studies, Adventures in Kate Bush and Theory makes theory accessible to new audiences. Through analysis of the music, film, video and dance of Kate Bush, it breaks down boundaries between the academic and popular, showing that theory can be sordid, funny and relevant – despite what most people think.
Adventures in Kate Bush and Theory has been described by Radio DJ Mark Radcliffe as “an in-depth labour of love from a genuine Bush fanatic” and by acclaimed international artist and scholar Allyson Mitchell as “a weaving of theory, historical data, imagination and activism tied with astute observation and wry wit, Cultural Studies has met its match in a readable stretch of the boundaries of theory and genres”.
Don’t miss the chance to discuss the philosophical possibilities of Kate Bush’s music with the author. The event is taking place on Sunday, March 21st from 2-5pm and you are invited to drop-in at anytime, readings and discussions will take place throughout the afternoon. To top this all off, there will be tea, cake and the odd YouTube clip as well.
The afternoon includes Ed Webb-Ingall’s vegan cakes
