Performance Matters 5th October 8.30pm.Musical Pieces / I Wanna Be in That ShowAugusto Corrieri and Owen ParryToynbee Studios.Part of an ongoing investigation into solo performance, Musical Pieces explores the deceptive qualities of perception and attention offered by the theatre, playing with different forms of on-stage concealment and trickery.I Wanna Be in that Show is a performance about wanting to be in a performance.

It’s about art that drives you to make more art, to revel in its forms and textures and to question the bodies that occupy it.
Performance Matters; Performing Idea – Other Durations5th October3:00-7:30pmToynbee StudiosWith: Janine Antoni, Matthew Goulish, Bojana Kunst, Boyan Manchev, Fred Moten and Lara ShalsonTime in Western Cultures continues to accelerate and a slower unregulated life is seemingly nowhere to be found. Contemporary art has seen a resurgence of performances of long and short durations and a re-valuation of historical works of duration. Artists are increasingly playing with, inhabiting and transforming the time of the artwork. Speakers will address questions of how we can now think of the time of performance? What are the relations between performance, time and cultural value? How is performance reconfiguring and othering our understandings and experiences of time?
Inspired by the myth of Pandora, this performance is an exploration of misfortune and accountability.
