Event description

Description

Broadacre House is the home for charities, social action and creativity in the heart of Newcastle. It is a unique space blending working for positive social change with a creative thread and a collaborative way of working. Broadacre House is a meanwhile (temporary) project, turning an empty office block into a thriving community space. It offers affordable office, meeting, coworking, event and exhibition spaces for charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises.

The Broadacre House project is coming to an end, as a meanwhile project – using an empty building until it was needed for commercial use – we all knew we would need to leave one day.

But before we go we want to record the sounds and voices of the building and in our week-long "Sound Level" project, tenants and users of the building will be working with sonic and visual artists and practitioners to archive, document and celebrate the building's time as a community hub.

On Thursday 12 October 2017 from 7pm - 9pm on the Third Floor of Broadacre House, and on the eve of TUSK Festival 2017 at Sage Gateshead, Monkfish Productions CIC are delighted to present "feedback" - an evening of sonic responses to Broadacre House in Newcastle as the culmination of "Sound Level".

The evening will include:

* Brb Voicecoil who will perform "fabric" and breath life into the condemned vessel following a 4 - day artistic residency at Broadacre House.

* Basic House, who will be producing a performance around a historic narrative of Broadacre: "Every building is a grave in time"

James Watts will be attending in his Dolmen Dweller guise where he will be communicating with the latent acoustic properties of Broadacre House, channeling them from throughout the building into one location to perform “Resonant Entities”

Chlorine is the work of local artist Graeme Hopper. Chlorine will perform "Building Glue" a piece constructed from digesting the external atmosphere of Broadacre House thus turning the building inside out.....

There will be a pay bar and entry to the event is free, but entry will be by ticket pre-booked on our Eventbrite site.

This initiative is jointly supported by the artists themselves, Broadacre House and Monkfish Productions CIC.
