‘Tropes of death, ghost in the locker, I’m the voyeur shedding tears in the mirror’, 

Session 001: I lie, I speak

What: It’s a cyberformance (cyber+performance) using a tale fiction of a nameless girl to attest to the dwelling of an invisible oracle inhabiting a pataphysical dimension. Participants are invited to join an internet-situated “room for change” to speculate and perform as an optical cavity to cast their gaze into the empty changing room, and to echo the presence of the oracle. This work came after a recent residency in a female changing room located within Spring Health: formerly a boutique healthcare/gymnasium built in the 1930s among residential mansions in Belsize Gardens, London, and left in an abandoned state with a sudden closing in 2017.

WHEN: Live – 06.06.2020 – 07:00 pm – 07:40 pm GMT+1 (for London) 09:00 pm – 09:40 pm GMT+3 (for Istanbul)
Duration: 40 minutes performance with Q&A after.
