Raptures of the Deep (Free-diving Film Night)
Thu 23 November @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
23 November 2017, Durham
Free-divers can seem like super humans. They have extraordinary, seemingly implausible, control over their bodies, particularly their breathing, and offer a fascinating insight into the connection between mind and body. A series of short films featuring record breakers including Johanna Nordblad and Guillaume Néry and our guest Liv Philip, will set the scene. Then we’ll discuss why the experience of losing the breath can both terrifying and exhilarating with champion freediver Liv Philip, artist Emma Critchley and researchers Rebecca Oxley and Arthur Rose.
FREE but places are limited. Reserve you place via the Being Human website
NB. Access to the venue is via stairs only. Films suitable for adults only (age 16+).
