An Artist’s Perspective: Film Screening of ‘Reet Good’ and Q&A with Pierce Starre

Thu 7th Sep

'Reet Good' is a documentary film following the journey of a new creative Live Art residency solely for artists that identify as D/deaf, disabled or nerodiverse. The film documents the first ‘Reet Good’ project, an electric, dynamic and trail-blazing event of Live Performance Art. 'Reet Good' seeks to break down barriers, challenge preconceptions and boldly centre and illuminate the work of Deaf, Disabled and Nuerodivergent Artists. After the screening Pierce Starre will share their process and learning as a producer and creator of a project which places access at the forefront of every element.

The film follows the journey of artists on a 4 day residency, lead by Pierce Starre, shared at QUAD Derby. During this residency, artists articulated and developed their individual practice within a temporary environment of co-creation and collective sharing. Following the film screening, you’ll have the chance to delve deeper into the artist’s vision, motivations, and artistic process during a Q&A session with Pierce Starre led by Laura Gutherie.

Their work predominantly explores their cultural experiences as a queer, working class, neurodivergent individual with Deaf parents, within a broader social and political context. Their artworks provide the viewer with an opportunity to be immersed within an embodied experience, creating a platform for connection, reflection, and discussion.

‘Reet Good’ was supported through the Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants as part of the UKNA Future Producers programme.
