Myself and Rachel Eames filmed onlytheantscansaveusnow (aka Jordan Linton) again as they performed they’re work The Safe Use of Ladders and Stepladders at Arrival Festival, Salford Media City, in August 2019.

Jordan says of the work:

“When working from a ladder, you should maintain three points of contact with it at all times. This will keep you safe.” But the bulb needs two hands to be unscrewed. And you need to hold the nail before you can hammer it. And sometimes, to get a job done, you need to ignore how you’ve been told to do it. And you might need to break ‘the rules’. The Safe Use of Ladders and Stepladders is a performance about using physical violence against the far right. It asks if this is the best way to deal with such an issue, and it asks what happens if it’s not what we ‘want’ to do.
