Sebastian H-W - Behind Closed Doors

12pm
Croydon Town Centre

'Behind Closed Doors' is a site-responsive, participatory walking audio tour, that explores mental well-being, auditory hallucinations, social cleansing and suppressed voices in regenerating cities. Participants, armed with just a pair of headphones and a handheld digital dictaphone, loaded with a mixtape of music tracks and audio instructions, set off together for an audio walk around an area undergoing regeneration.

This walking tour is FREE

Angela Bartram - Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks

1-2pm
Venue TBC

At a recent animal studies conference I noticed that although discussions were of the subjects being sentient and cognate, the delivery was for humans. Essentially, animals have no opportunity to understand the theories written about them. For the past year I have been reading animal theory to dogs, cats and horses and now it is time for a lecture for dogs and their humans about dogs in art. ‘Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks’ is a different type of lecture for an interspecies audience and extended ‘pack’.

This is a dog-friendly performance.

Lizzie Masterton - ASMR: Tools for Tenderness

7:30pm
Braithwaite Hall

ASMR: Tools for Tenderness is a participatory talk and live ASMR experience by Lizzie Masterton, exploring the physiological and psychological tingling sensation of ASMR, its potential for healing fractures in the relationship between the mind and body, as well as promoting a sense of wellbeing.

Hermann Nitsch - Retrospective

12-10pm
David Lean Cinema

We are honoured to showcase a rare retrospective of works from the archive of Hermann Nitsch ahead of his 80th birthday on 29th August 2018.

This legendary artist granted TF18 permission to screen a selection of pieces chosen by Hermann Nitsch himself and our artistic director, Dr. Thomas John Bacon for the festival.

A founder of the short-lived and yet continually relevant, shocking, and infamously impactful, Viennese Aktionists, Hermann Nitsch’s influence continues to touch all of performance art still today. His Orgien Mysterien Theater aktions, often involve slaughter, butchery, religious sacrifices, crucifixion, as well as noise, dance, celebration, ritual and rapture. The viewing experience on film is no less impactful and creates beautifully shocking imagery that holds its audience in a world full of question and wonder.

Each aktion will be screened only once; shown in full and uncut.
