A powerful story of paleness, blending in and standing out.
“I was born on the day the Pope came to Coventry, my home town. In my family this unexpected appearance was perceived as a blessing. A sublime gift”
Influenced by her experience as a person with albinism, Jo Bannon uses blinding light, proximity, movement and sound to create an extraordinary visual poem.
Alba explores the stories we tell of ourselves and the stories told about us, the myths we inherit and the ones we embody, the identities we cannot shake off and so instead perform.

About the Artist
Jo Bannon is a UK artist who makes live art and performance. She has presented work in the UK and Europe including The Barbican, In Between Time Festival, Arnolfini, Spill Festival of Performance, Battersea Arts Centre PAD Mainz and the National Theatre. She is an In Between Time Associate Artist and founder member of Residence.
Jo’s work is concerned with human exchange and encounter and explores how our physical bodies experience the world around us and how this sensory experience can or cannot be conveyed. Jo unpicks the ways in which we look, hear and sense our immediate environment in order to rethink or make unfamiliar these intrinsic human behaviours. Her performance work often manifests as intimate encounters designed for single or small audiences, alongside staged theatre work and installations.

For the Arts sector, the last few months have been a time of crisis, but also a time of reflection. The building is a luxury and we miss it. We miss artists making their work in our spaces and audiences making a journey through the building to see that work and we miss being together…Read More

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices.

An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…Read More
