The Melodrama Research Group (https://blogs.kent.ac.uk/melodramaresearchgroup/) at the University of Kent has curated a 3 screen installation piece for the International Festival of Projections called ‘Passages of Gothic’. The piece, which has been created by the MRG and organisers of the Gothic Feminism conference, celebrates the performance of the Gothic heroine in cinema:
‘Experience an atmospheric multi-screen installation celebrating the Gothic heroine in film. While she is often dismissed as a passive observer, this curated collection of classic film clips privileges the Gothic heroine in moments of active investigation and bravery. These often stand directly in opposition to her suffering and persecution. Explore the slippage between women’s private and public behaviours in a setting which reflects, indeed heightens, the complexity of these underrated female protagonists.’
Passages of Gothic can be seen in Eliot Dining Hall, Eliot College, University of Kent on Sunday 20th March 2016, from 5-8pm. Each performance lasts approximately 20 minutes and will begin on each hour and half hour.
