Angie Bual

Artistic Director of Trigger. Producer of live, theatrical and visual work.

This Lunchtime Talk will be broadcast live on Watershed's YouTube channel.

Trigger have been exploring ideas around our natural environment, and how plants have crossed borders and have become national icons for new places. The English rose originated from China, and tumbleweed from Moscow. Did you know that 80% of the plants in your garden are non-native? 

How have plants smuggled their way over the borders? And how do we tell their stories? 

Trigger have been working with academics from Brigstow Institute, Zena Edwards at Apples & Snakes, Trees for Life in Scotland, Wolves Lane Flowers and designer Carl Robertshaw. 

Join us on Fri 22nd January, 13:00-14:00 for the talk and to take part in the discussion afterwards.
