Don’t lose sight of anybody else…
Posted: 1 December 2014
A small constellation is a strategy for making an instant performance about seeing ourselves in relation to others.
Some people meet in a room. Each of them gets familiar with who else is there. They become some kind of group, at least for now.
They walk out into the city with a simple set of instructions: don’t lose sight of anybody else, go wherever you like… Try to blend in.
A couple of hours later they return to the room they met in. Together they build a representation of what just happened.
An audience comes and goes and observes what happens.
If you’d like to take part in A small constellation please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to book one of the 20 spaces available. Spaces are included in a day ticket for Shift Festival at Contact for Saturday 6 December. Tickets for Shift Festival can be purchased here or by calling Contact’s box office: 0161 274 0600.
As A small constellation is part of SHIFT Festival, if you purchase a ticket for Quarantine you will also have the opportunity to see the work of the other exciting artists who are performing on the Saturday – you can see the full programme here. We’ve been promised interventions, installations, workshops, panel discussions, exhibitions, music, pizza, samosas, popcorn and fizzy pop so it should be a great weekend. We look forward to seeing you there.
And a warm welcome…
We’d like to extend a warm welcome to Hannah Hiett who will be joining us this week as our new Communications Manager. We’re really looking forward to working with Hannah.
