Void Story - Test Image

I’m in New York for Sight is The Sense as part of Under The Radar with the amazing Jim Fletcher this coming Thursday, Saturday and Sunday (8, 10 and 11 of Jan) – watch out because the performances are at strange times! Friday night meanwhile is the opening for Vlatka’s show at The Kitchen. While I am in town I’m also hoping to catch Young Jean Lee’s new piece The Shipment (again at The Kitchen) and Tim Crouch‘s England (at Chelsea Art Museum). Busy bloke then.

After New York it’s home for a short while then Vienna where we do (very rough and ready) work in progress for the Forced Entertainment project Void Story. I posted test images for the piece below – one further above. The piece is dialogue by yours truly performed as dysfunctional radio play by FE, plus a storyboard/graphic novel of new collages I’m working on right now, illustrating the text. Final version of the show isn’t until way off in April, at Soho Theatre, in London as part of the very excellent Spill Festival. Also at Spill this year the project I made with Victoria – That Night Follows Day – with two presentations at at The Queen Elizabeth Hall on the South Bank. Book early – I have a feeling these shows might sell out.
