It was a pleasure to be asked by Jen Parker Starbuck and Josh Abrams to work on a performance program for ASTR 2016. The call we sent out asked for performances that resonated with, responded to and playfully provoked the conference’s theme TRANS and which responded
to the transitory nature of conferences and hotel spaces, inviting performances that move across, through, beyond, between people, places and states.
Despite the challenge of no gallery, black box or theatre spaces,
no lighting or set and working within the confines and constraints
of a hotel conference setting we were thrilled to receive a rich and diverse range of works. Artists are exploring ideas of transgender, transfiguration, transgression, transition, transportation, translation, transformation, transplantation and much more besides. The performances are durational, one-to-one, flash, pop up, installation, lec-dem and invisible. Some last 17 hours some just a few moments.

PRIVATE KEEP OUT! took place over the weekend of 27-28 August on the stretch of coast between St Leonard’s and Hastings on the South East coastline. Each day was given over to workshops and site specific performances on ideas around PRIVATE and TRESPASS. We were lucky to work with a group of fabulous UK based artists who made a range of political, poetic and potent work.DIY WORKSHOP, HASTINGS - - Read More
LADA Screens launch event and screening of two short films by Curious with Andrew Kötting.
An idyllic location, a perfect spot, but something just isn't quite right, something doesn't fit. Shot on the crumbling cliffs of Beachy Head, the film plays out as a Beckettian post apocalyptic picnic.
‘Sea Swallow’d’, 2010
Charts the choppy waters of gut feelings, capturing the flotsam and jetsam of impulse, desire and fights to the death. Shot as a series of lapping and flowing, irregular chapters, which borrow their titles from Moby Dick.
Excited to be part of this wonderful publication, Delighted to be part of this innovative publication - a collaboration between the Live Art Development Agency (LADA), Theatre of Research (Germany), Tate Early Years and Family Programme (UK), Best Biennial (Sweden) and Live Art UK, support by the Goethe-Institut London.
