Paper leaves and other constructions

Editor: Karen Christopher, Tara Fatehi Irani | Reference: P4180 | Type: Publication

Paper leaves and other constructions
a reading companion to Always Already
compiled and edited by Karen Christopher & Tara Fatehi Irani

Always Already is an 8-hour performance installation by Karen Christopher & Tara Fatehi Irani, which uses materials, text, sound and movement to explore the weaving together of plant, human and machine, including human/plant and human/machine hybrids.

Paper leaves and other constructions is a 32-page booklet, introducing the themes and content of the project, and responding to many of the questions that arose in the creative process. Drawing parallels between a path through life and one through the making of a particular work of performance, the booklet answers the question “how did you do that?”

The booklet includes contributions from Karen, Tara, Payman Kassaei (Professor of Mathematics, Kings College), Felipe Ribeiro (performance artist and researcher), Omikemi (poet), Eirini Kartsaki (performance writer and teacher), and an interview with Henry Dagg (sound sculptor and builder of experimental musical instruments).

Theatre at the Crossroads of Culture

Artist/Author: Patrice Pavis | Reference: P3300 | ISBN: 978-0415060387 | Type: Publication

Despite the problematic politics of cultural exchange in the theatre, interculturalism is not a one-sided process.

Performing Idea: Dialogue Project: Moving - Writing

Artist/Author: Adrian Heathfield, Jonathan Burrows | Reference: D2104 | Type: DVD

Performance Matters Performing Idea Dialogues,Toynbee Studios 04.10.10:Choreographer Jonathan Burrows and writer and curator Adrian Heathfield have developed a dialogue around the relationship between writing and dancing. They were interested in exploring the creative tension between the distinctive affects of embodied actions and spoken words, investigating their different roles in the making and receiving of meaning. They were fascinated by those moments of intensity – unforgettable yet unspeakable – where something of life is disclosed between sense and sensibility. What are the relative weights of gestures and words in a performance space? How can each open to the other? What place does music occupy in a negotiation between muted movements and sonorous words? What might be some principles of composition for a generative relation between creative writing and choreography?
