Somerset House Studios’ Hyper Functional, Ultra Healthy series returns.

Somerset House Studios’ Hyper Functional, Ultra Healthy series returns with a dynamic online programme of new commissions, films, workshops, and conversations from artists and scientists exploring the concept of health and wellbeing in the age of the pandemic.

The 2021 edition of Hyper Functional, Ultra Healthy considers individual health and collective wellbeing in the current moment, exploring how art can help navigate through times of crisis and create space to reconnect with the planet and each other. Offering moments of reflection and relief, Hyper Functional, Ultra Healthy invites audiences to consider how a healthier, more progressive future may be achieved collectively.

Launching on 2nd February, the free digital series offers nine moments for audiences to discover new commissions, films, workshops, and conversations from the Studios creative community and beyond, tackling themes ranging from the sensory and spiritual to social and environmental.

Highlights include:

New co-commission from artist-healer-seeker Tabita Rezaire guides audiences through the ancient African practice of Kemetic yoga

Premiere of new commission from Studios residents Laura Grace Ford and Sam Williams reflects on the relationship between the city and the body in a time of heightened isolation
