Look No Further

On 18th May 2013, I was self-married by civil partnership. This is my life’s commitment.

Look No Further is about a woman of colour raising the stakes in her life to determine her own vision and future. Staged as a post wedding reception dinner, the performance invites an audience as guests to this unique celebration of ‘queering’ and reclamation.

Ria Hartley was the recipient of 2017 IBT Wild Card Award. The Wild Card Award commissions one exceptional UK artist every IBT Festival. From a national open call, the artist is selected on the basis of an outstanding interdisciplinary practice and the urgency of their work.
