Through writing, moving image, performance and installation, Joanna Peace takes her audience through an immersive journey, with audiences often experiencing tender and emotional moments. Often referencing female protagonists, characters which populate her fictional writing and performance, she creates site-specific works which are often bound to distinct architectural spaces by repetitive tasks, repetitions that circle moments of trauma or rupture. Her more recent works have often involved collaborative projects and for the Tall Tales programme, she will be supporting the Call for Cloth commission to work directly with Lauren Sagar and local audiences in London and Glasgow on a series of collaborative workshops, creating a platform for memories to be collected and stories to be shared.   For more detail about Joanna Peace check out
