Pushing the experimental edges of things
06 August 2011
Pushing the experimental edges of things, on Saturday August 6, The Little Con goes something like this:
An audience sits in two adjacent lines, forming a cross shape which divides the space into four quadrants. Peter Fraser, Fiona Bryant, Alice Cummins and Tony Yap each curate forty-five minutes of performance in their quadrant of the space. None of the curators know what to expect from the other curators.
Audience can focus on one quadrant, swap their focus between quadrants, or try to take in the whole space. Each curator's beginning time is staggered by five minutes, so the space slowly fills with activity, one quadrant at a time, until all the quadrants are busy, then slowly quietens until all the quadrants are empty. What happens in between is for the audience and performers to negotiate in real time.
See you there.
