(States of Wake) was a live critical writing project that took the form of dedications as moments of critical attention, unfolding as part of WAKE Festival in Folkestone. This book is a document of that process and an exploration of the gesture of dedicating performance.
Brings together artists, curators and producers, writers and critics to think through their relationship with criticism, revealing passionately held and often conflicting opinions on what criticism is and where it resides. Follows Steakhouse: Live Writing, a pilot project undertaken as part of the 2016 Steakhouse Live Festival of Live Art and Performance.
An inventive, participatory and humorous performance that playfully challenges the conventions of theatre, watching and our imagination.
