Her project Mishandled Archive (since 2017) which culminated in the publication of a book with LADA (2020), engages with daily minimal choreographies in public spaces as acts of resistance.

make work that creatively interprets political situations and feelings. Between them, they hold experience as performance makers, curators, writers and community organizers. Jemima and Anahi are interested in creatively reflecting on their felt experience of power structures as women, migrants, cultural workers and ambiguously young people. They gravitate towards creating work that involves the act of making things public and making the covert or insidious explicit. They like to laugh when they do this, so humour is also important. Currently, Yong and Herrera are working on a research as performance project called RAGE ON STAGE
, which is about the many layers and expressions of feminist anger. They live and work in London (for now).
