SARAH FORREST

Invited by Neil Bickerton and Hospitalfield, Sarah Forrest developed a new performance for WHAT YOU DO, I LIKE.

The Narrator was presented three times over the weekend 8 – 9 September 2018. The performance has been devised through visits to Hospitalfield’s coach house and, in part, on reflections on footage taken by Forrest during her residency here in 2016.
