20th May 2014 7:00pm-10:00pm
The Marlborough Theatre, 4 Prince's Street
An evening of live art at the Marlborough Theatre.
MA Performance and Visual Arts students' performance group show - part of The 2014 Brighton Fringe.
We invite you to walk through the Marlborough Pub & Theatre for an evening of live art as part of the Brighton Fringe 2014 program.
Join us for 'Delectable Doom', 'Not a Séance', 'Dirty History', and 'Portrait (Distorted Presence)' as each individual artist shares their particular performance practice.
The performances will be repeated throughout the evening. So feel free to come and go OR stay the entire time. Keep in mind, however, that in order to experience all of the work last entry will be at 9pm. We will update this event page with a more detailed schedule closer to the date.
THE WORK is installed in the upstairs theatre space.
'Portrait (Distorted Presence)' is an interaction between Katy Pendlebury and her projected image. Simultaneously becoming an antique version of herself and creating a choreography in the projected frame as she performs, she aims to explore how the camera creates the past out of the present. Katy’s visual metamorphosis will take place several times during the evening.
Dirty History is Ryan M. McKelvey's sensual representation of a sexual memory through ritual, soil, & time. Processing and reviewing past memories and experiences takes time. Digging through the dirt of one’s history requires work. Throughout the evening, Ryan will slowly perform with his soil twice. (installed in the left side pub space)
Kate McCoy has a gift. She can connect with the earthy and unearthly power of vegetables to help you transform your life. Her vegetable guide is the potato and throughout the evening she will be running one-to-one sessions offering inspiration and guidance and larger group workshops enabling you to connect with your very own personal vegetable guide. There will probably be some stew making too.
Jennie Howell is a musician, fine artist and baker who combines disciplines to create settings of multi sensory wonder through performance and live art installations. 'Delectable Doom' combines edible, visual, and sonic creations intended to leave a lasting sensual memory. Featuring medieval and renaissance choral polyphony by Nunc et Tunc (Jennie Howell, Jo Burke, Blue Pin, Martin Goodier, Maurice Shipsey).
The four artists are all currently studying on the MA in Performance & Visual Practices at the University of Brighton.
