Performance Lab Day 2: Saturday 4 March 2017 (1 - 8pm)
Julie Groves, And So I Met My Other’s Other
(6.30pm, Studio Theatre followed by a drinks reception at 7pm)
An immersive sound art performance, And So I Met My Other’s Other (2017) addresses the “cats cradle of identification” and dialogic tension created by performance. Spilling outside of perceived boundaries, it causes us to question our roles as performer or receiver; as the viewer or the viewed through a re-conceived and physically re-composed experience of familiar event situations. This performance aims to problematize the Other via the invisibly humming space of entwinement between all the protagonists present.
Playing on Sartre's themes of Other-ness as played out in his philosophical essay, "the Look", And So I met My Other's Other causes its audience to experience a slippage of boundaries, rules and awareness of the self. Playful and intriguing, this sound art performance straddles the line between instrumental music performance and sound art, the two worlds colliding to create a hum of playful tension.
