DARC - Transformance

12pm
Matthews Yard: Gallery

Transformance is a process of artistic exchange and creation in which live performance, documentation, translation and transformation meet. The project seeks to blur the lines between live performance and documentation. The aim is to generate a hybridised live practice by creating and responding together through a variety of disciplines including photography, video, drawing, writing, performance and alternative forms of documentation. At Tempting Failure, the collective will present an installation of the multifaceted documentation created during their Transformance sessions with the participating artists.

Adam York Gregory & Gillian Jane Lees - Strike

6-10pm
Matthews Yard: Gallery

In a totally dark room, a performer will attempt to construct 40 electrical lights in 4 hours using only match light as they connect bulbs, wires and plugs. When each light is finished it is plugged into a socket that is operated by an electrical timer switch. After four hours the switch will activate and the space will be illuminated. The illumination correlates to the performers success and ability to perform the task. Darkness denotes a failure of the task.

Lori Baldwin - The Villages

7pm
The Spread Eagle Pub Theatre

The Villages sets the conditions for an intimate encounter. It’s a request, an experiment, a proposal. It highlights the connection that is created in subversive and explicit power dynamics and the physical actions that accompany them. The piece offers an alternative intimacy that can be experienced in and through a specific frame. The Villages explores what happens when BDSM practices are carried out in a public performative setting; when we deal with our bodies as they are in the present.

ANERHLOD - LEIBNIZ - Transfusion: A Collective Act of Remembrance

8:30pm
