You Can Probably Turn This Into Something is an installation/ exhibition that presents a web of practice materials, objects, instructions to participate, and performance documents from the last 10 years of Dog Kennel Hill Projects practices. Within a specifically designed landscape of objects and video, audio and text documents, we invite audiences to dig around the ever evolving worlds that have been inhabited through our research investigations and notice how their own choices of attention and position might allow them to turn it into ‘something'. The landscapes include People Working 2009-2013, Etudes in Tension and Crisis 2014-17, Messages from the Field, 2017-19 and Wayfaring Encounters 2018-19
A programme of performance and participation workshops is interwoven through the exhibition. All events are free and open to all.

In Conversation with Dr Kélina Gotman on Being Animal, Feigning Feigning and the Liquidity of Reality.
Dog Kennel Hill Project will navigate readings and conversations with Dr Kélina Gotman. This event will draw from meeting points in Gotman’s research into theatre and making, and DKHP’s practices of emotional shape-shifting and the moulding of imagined stories into bodily realities. Together they will situate performed activities within questions that span critical studies of science and medicine, history, philosophy, and cultural theory.

Wayfaring Encounters: Performance Lecture
Placing Wayfaring Encounters in relation to Tim Ingold's articulations of the creative process.
In the context of selections of Ingold’s thinking from Lines (2007), Search and Search again (2018), Making (2013) and Being Alive (2011), this event navigates the space between thinking, doing and being. ‘Wayfaring Encounters’ is a developing practice of embodied precision that we will situate in the context of Ingold's body of research, generously articulating and evoking a felt understanding of the creative process of being human with, in and as the world.
