Unfamiliar to Us
Presented by The Royal Docks in partnership with Queer Newham
at The Silver Building, 60 Dock Rd, London E16 1YZ

26 June - 17 July (Mon - Sat)

What does 'family' mean, particularly if you're queer? In this immersive video installation, visual artist Yorgos Petrou and performance artist Victor Esses explore their desire to have children, with all the memories, experiences and fears that arise from that.

Beautifully intimate, full of gentle humour and tender moments, Unfamiliar to Us is a stripped-back autobiographical piece about being queer, wanting children and, ultimately, the human need to create a legacy.

Shot in one continuous take, the film of the performance crosses the lines of live art, theatre, film and performance art. The installation is made up of multiple screens and objects so you can choose the angle you watch from – the eyes, the feet, the interior of the home.

Screen times. weekdays: 11.00, 12.10, 13.20, 14.30, 15.40
Saturdays: 11.00, 12.10, 13.20, 14.30, 15.40, 16.50

No booking necessary.
Duration: approx. 1 hour
It is suggested that you watch the whole screening but you are welcome to pop in and out at any point.
Commissioned by Join the Docks.
Supported by Arts Council England, Applecart Arts, Battersea Arts Centre, Brighton Dome, CASA Festival and The Pleasance London

CALL OUT! - Unfamiliar to Us exhibition
As part of the Unfamiliar to Us exhibition, part of Join the Docks Festival, which will be shown at The Silver Building from 26th June to 17th of July 2021, visual artist Yorgos Petrou and theatre maker Victor Esses, are offering a workshop for early career artists interested in making and exploring autobiographical work. The workshop is free and will take place at the Silver Building, on Saturday 3 July 2021, 11am - 2pm. 10 spots will be offered completely free of charge.


This workshop is focused in guiding and providing a space for early career artists and curious adults interested in exploring and developing autobiographical work. This can take the form of writing, performance, visual arts, amongst others.
Esses and Petrou seek to provide an open environment to explore ideas and create a support network that extends beyond the day of the workshop. They will share their process with the group, and be accessible for follow ups for the few months following, and will keep connected to the other participants.

Those interested can complete this short form telling us a bit about themselves and why they would like to take part in the workshop.
The closing date for submissions is Friday 11th June, 12pm Successful candidates will receive an email of acceptance to the workshop and further information on the workshop, closer to the date.
Our workshop is open to early career artists only. We accept applications from everyone regardless of backgrounds and disciplines. We highly encourage applications from people local to the Royal Docks and Newham, queer, disabled, and global majority and anyone who feels underrepresented in the arts.
This workshop is supported by Join the Docks, The Silver Building and Queer Newham.
