Friday, April 8, 2022, 12:00 PM

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022 has led to unprecedented refugees flows in Europe: in addition to the 6.48 millions of internally displaced people, the UNHCR estimated on 28 March 2022 that 3.9 millions of persons had fled their home and crossed borders.

This event gathers high-level experts to analyse the answers provided to these massive flows of refugees. It will focus on three different individual and collective actors with distinctive roles and reactions:

Drinks Before the Revolution: Tilda Death’s Cocktails Tutorial
26 February 2020

LGBT+ History Month: Irrepressible non-state actors Joé de Vivre and Tilda Death invite you for a special evening of drag, queer history and Molotov Cocktails. A casual tutorial that will teach you the essentials in flaring, armed resistance, poetic resistance and co-resistance. Tilda's got some recipes every guerrilla needs, and there's no assimilating Joé when he's sugar high on mocktails. The party at the end of queer history's nearly started, time to get prepared... What to expect: cocktails & mocktails, performance and opportunities to get your hands dirty.   Joé de Vivre and Tilda Death are Jo Tyabji and Raz Weiner. Previous work together includes An Urgent Queervention on Antisemitism and Islamophobia (Tate Modern), and Motherland (UK Tour). Jo Tyabji is a director and performer who drags as Joé de Vivre. Recent work includes MY NAME IS MY OWN at the Southbank Centre ('Furious & exciting & delicate & beautiful’ @reviewsntings), MOTHERLAND, currently touring ('Phenomenal...drag performance personified' @CMS_Britain). She co-founded ivo theatre in 2014, and co-created the Outrageous! open commission for queer artists in Bombay and London in 2017. Raz Weiner is a maker and researcher of performance. Raz works professionally as a dramaturg and director and as a researcher at QMUL’s Politics and IR Department. His work applies a combined methodology of archival research, ethnography and autoethnography to the study of drag as phenomenology, at the intersection of queer theory and colonialism. His drag-persona Tilda Death is a life project, a research methodology and a philosophy, all put in one short wig.
