Experiments in Listening
is the name for a series of week-long performative dialogues that took place in 2014 and 2015 between Rajni Shah and performance-makers Karen Christopher, Chris Goode, and Andy Smith.

Each dialogue was accompanied by a filmmaker, who was invited to make a film in response to the week. The resulting films – by Lisa Cazzato-Vieyra, Griffyn Gilligan, and Jonathan Kemp – are three distinctly personal responses to the dialogues, capturing moments of laughter, intimacy, frustration, confrontation, silence, dance, and indeed love.

You are warmly invited to attend what will most likely be the final screening of these three films, which will be hosted by Rajni.
The screening will include a short facilitated discussion, and will be accompanied by refreshments.


A transcript of the three films will be available on the night, and can also be emailed if you would find it helpful to look at it in advance. Please contact Alice Booth on Booth (a.e.booth@lancaster.ac.uk) if you would like to receive one in advance.
