On Saturday 24th January 2015 at 4.30pm I will perform ‘flat-head self-tapping’ as part of the From Devon with Love series at the Barbican Theatre, Plymouth. Booking and details of times are here: From Devon with Love
Taking elements from Bell’s Standard Elocutionist and from online dictionaries, the performance assembles fragments, word lists, letters, and gestures into a display of awkward flapping interrupted by gnomic expulsions.
An earlier version of the piece was developed for the PW12 weekend at Arnolfini, Bristol; it connects to the EVP commission ‘muster page habit 2’, and to the investigations in ‘answering machine’ which was made for Experimentica 14.
‘flat-head self-tapping’ is programmed as part of a double-bill with #BodyProblems by Alexandra Ogando.
