Plots and Improvised Doorways by Emma Bennett and Holly Pester

Holly Pester is a poet working through archives and written histories, with gossip, radical storying and dream logic. Her book, go to reception and ask for Sara in red felt tip is a collection of archive fan-fiction (Book Works 2015) and her album, Common Rest (Test Centre 2016) is a collection of collaborative lullabies and sound poems.

Emma Bennett is a performance artist and theorist of joking. She has recently finished a PhD on speech, work, stubbornness and longing. For her most recent performance What Matter (created for Hubbub at Wellcome Collection, 2016) she brought all her soft furnishings onto the stage.
