Leah Hennessey & Emily Allan
Guest Artists, 2019
Allan and Hennessey are playwrights, directors, and actors best known for their web series Zhe Zhe, a camp satire of New York City's performance scene, and for their recent two-person show Slash, which also considered “slash” culture and homoerotic fan fiction about iconic celebrity and fictional pairings.
Leah and Emily came to CERN to research on their next project, a series of films which uses the legend of Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron’s summer sojourn on Lake Geneva to explore contemporary ecological, cultural and scientific problems in a provocative and psychedelically engaging way.
Their residency is organised in collaboration with the Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève as part of the Biennale de l'Image en Mouvement 2020.
