Susannah Hewlett

TV Dinners

Open Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays, 12 – 4pm.

This is a past event which has now ended.

Susannah Hewlett’s work crossbreeds live performance, video, comedy, theatre and sound. She performs and exhibits in galleries, theatres, museums, cinemas, nightclubs and festivals.  She is an associate artist of legendary queer performance collective Duckie.

Fixated on popular culture, her work disarms audiences, using comedy as a strategy through character-led performance, subtle interventions and videos.  Humour often gives way to discomfort revealing the darker aspects of human behaviour and our symbiosis with consumerism.

TV Dinners sees Sue bring her work back to Norfolk after graduating from NUCA over 20 years ago – a buffet selection of her finest cold cuts; a platter of audio and televisual highlights and be-wigged character performance, including the return of perennial idiot Chris Titmas, egomaniacal VSS Shopping Channel host and ‘personality’.

This exhibition is part of a wider tour, including Brighton Festival.

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
