Season Butler

Season Butler is a writer and artist. Season also works as a dramaturg, and as a lecturer in Performance Studies and Creative Writing. Working mainly in Live Art, performative installation and alternative theatre, she has leant her input to a number of radical new performance works by artists including Selina Thompson (salt, 2016), Alexandrina Hemsley and Seke Chimutengwende (Black Holes, 2018) and Rachael Young (Nightclubbing, 2018), and adapted Jamaica Kincaid’s classic polemic, A Small Place, for stage in 2018. Her writing, research and art practice centre around intersectionality and narratives of otherness, isolation and negotiations with hope. Her recent solo work has appeared in the Baltic Centre, Tate Exchange and Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art, and she was shortlisted for the SI Leeds Prize for Fiction by Black and Asian women in 2014. She is a member of I’m With You, (a collective concerned with performance, queer domesticity and gesturing toward wily future), and an associate artist of Somerset House Studios. Her debut novel, Cygnet, was published in spring 2019.
