Buzzcut (busy busy)

Yet another busy week this week, organising and setting up for the next few months work…

Last weeks performance events went great!

In the Absence of… was a huge success. Having spent the day at a workshop run by Richard Layzell we were all really ready and warmed up and I think it showed. Sylvia Law performed a stunningly simple resonance piece in which she sang through a hollow wall to someone on the other side. Both pressed into the corners facing the wall, the result was a beautiful and powerful one to one experience. I performed my piece Felis Felix (Happy Cat) which I will describe in a later post, which I think went down well.

Saturday night was Crawl Inclusive an art crawl around Dundee. I was part of the For Sale performance which consisted of a manic estate agent showing the house to visitors who were confronted by strange scenes in each room, a girl staring into a fridge full of milk cartons, a cat stroking a humans hair and feeding them cat shit from a litter tray, a girl in a bath peeling potatoes and fish with a razor and a half-dressed man ‘masturbating’ a tube of mascara. This was just one of many great performances on the night (most of which I unfortunately missed).

This weekend is also busy busy… The opening of the RSA:New Contemporaries exhibition is tomorrow night in Edinburgh, then Sunday is the screening of the Dundee Performance Collective’s collaborative video piece with Bbeyond at the Buzzcut festival in Glasgow.

I will be back with more next week…
