EXSOLVO - an exploration of release

  • Market Square Margate (map)

The concept of freedom from trafficking is complex. Survivors are often faced with psychological, social, emotional and spiritual bonds that go beyond the physical release from slavery. In Latin, EXSOLVO means 'to loose'. EXSOLVO is a partnership between The Natashas Project, visual artist Ruth Fox and musician ANNA of The JAM Network UK. The dance installation, performed by Harriet Parker-Beldeau, uses embodied media through dance, visual and sound to explore the experience of enslavement and release in human trafficking, while raising awareness and educating a wider audience of this social issue, as a part of the POW Festival Thanet.

This is not an ‘out there’ phenomenon; this is a story of our place.

The dance will be filmed for public view and the installation piece will be on display through the POW Festival March 7-11 at the Pie Factory Gallery, Margate. The live public performance will take place Thursday March 7th at Market Place, Margate.
