Dates and times
An evening of films, interviews, and video performances programmed by Glasgow based artist Christian Noelle Charles that present her inspiration for her performance practice, CC TIME.
The interviews in this programme are considered interludes. They demonstrate black women’s interactions with white men, expressing confidence through their personality.
For example, in Grace Jones’s now infamous ‘Day Today’ interview, she expresses and defines her identity without hesitation in the face of questions which seek to re-enforce negative and misogynistic attitudes towards women and people of colour in general. To which Jones compellingly replies “I’m very much human, very much that”, a video and sentiment that has gone viral for the millennial generation as an affirmation of the agency of women of colour.
“as black women we are more than who we appear to be and just to prompt ourselves, (Jones) shows us we should always present our most authentic selves to the world and that’s what I would like to present to you here in this screening.” – Christine Noelle Charles
CC TIME is an exploration between video and performance, executing the idea of the audience watching CC no matter the judgements. Using references like 'The Oppositional Gaze' by Bell Hooks, this practice introduces volumes of concepts of race and gender with ideas from representation and self-love.
This event follows on from the CC TIME performance TURN, co-commissioned by Tramway with Take Me Somewhere festival in 2018.
