Tai Shani's multidisciplinary practice, comprising performance, film and installation, revolves around experimental narrative texts. These alternate between familiar narrative tropes and structures and theoretical prose in order to explore the construction of subjectivity, excess and affect and the epic in relation to post-patriarchal realism. Shani's ongoing feminist project, Dark Continent Productions, is iterated through character-led installations, films, performances and experimental texts, is an expanded adaptation of Christine de Pizan's 1405 pioneering proto-feminist book, ‘The Book of the City of Ladies’.
