Performance event/ ritualisation Curation/ Production/ Performance


In collaboration with VoinDeVoin. Providing a platform for performance: 27 performance artists were asked to create a new piece on the theme of ‘manifesting sensation’. Performers could perform anywhere in the space, using any medium, restricted only by the time limit of five minutes.
During the event a ritualisation was created as a structure:

Artists and viewers were asked to participate in a silent procession and the building of a performative altar. No documentation allowed throughout the evening. Participants and viewers were asked to describe what they had seen to the ‘transcontinental interpreter’ Andrew F.-Smith
on skype. The interpreter’s task was to interrogate and gather information provided by the visitor on the performances they had just seen, it was then reconfigured and described back to the participants and members of the audience
