Thursday 20th October | Doors 7pm | £4
An evening of two performances developed from two very different approaches to language.
Artist/Writer Claire Potter will read CHAVSCUMBOSS, a meditation on the performed masculinity of a Youtube user by the same name. Composer and long-standing Bank Street Arts resident Stephen Chase will perform pieces that derive from performance scores comprised of words.
Claire Potter works with live, published, and recorded text as well as installation and performance. Claire’s work addresses modes of speaking and reading to bring narratology, affect, and articulation methods to the audiences’ attention.
Stephen Chase composes, improvises, and walks quite a lot. His work veers between generative methods and following-his-nose.
