Letters of Resignation was a postal choreography course running from February to June 2021. It was hosted by Chatting Tanum and made up of five letters invited from guest contributors: Salome Wagaine, Harry Josephine Giles, Rukeya, My Dads Strip Club and Clare Daly. Read the course description here.
This zine was produced following the course in collaboration with the participants and guest artists. Rather than replicate the commissioned artist’s letters, it is collection of material contributions from the participants and guest artists that have arisen over the past year. We hope this scanned mess of fragments, responses, excerpts and notes can resonate out some of the experience of those that took part.
The course participants were: Angelos Angelidis, Yang Zhao, Renée Bellamy, Fran Riley, Amy Cartwright, Debbie Hannan, Rubie Green, Sofie Narbed, Jane Eve, Katrine Skovsgaard, Julia Gilmour, Katherine Hall, Emily Warner and Shivaangee Agrawal.
Letters of Resignation is created and hosted by Chatting Tanum, the collaborative practice of Rohanne Udall and Paul Hughes, who currently respectively moonlight as the Content and Communications Manager at Siobhan Davies Studios, and as a doctoral researcher with the University of Roehampton and Sadler’s Wells’ Theatre. This project was funded by Siobhan Davies Studios through the Culture Recovery Fund, and through Rohanne and Paul’s respective institutional roles.
