‘cream of the crop’ for SOAK, Plymouth on 25th January

On January 25th I will present a new performance peice as part of the SOAK Live Art event at Leadworks in Plymouth. Organised by Sarah Blissett and Kerry Priest, SOAK is a bi-monthly live art series with a number of performers each time, bringing together live art, experimental performance, film, spoken word and music. For SOAK I will perform ‘cream of the crop’, a development of the research and testing I did on residency at Live Art Ireland in October 2023. Looking at grass and plant life, at rural life, at the impact of the dairy industry, the piece considers interaction of human and other-than-human systems. Simple actions with props and tasks are structured into a sequence, threaded through with spoken text. There are bin liners, a bucket, gloves, knee pads, a body, and words that slip between contexts of climate, sport, and agriculture.

review of Radio Art Zone book

My review of Radio Art Zone, edited by Sarah Washington (Hatje Cantz, 2023) is now published on Leonardo Reviews. It is a beautiful book, bringing together on its varied pages a wide range of radio responses to the 100 Days of Radio project that was presented as part of the Esch Capital of Culture programme in summer 2022.
