Exploring the dual meaning of ‘mediation’ within performance – the physicality of interpretation, and transcendent ritual.
The fleeting trick of light from the corner of the eye, the brief contact point of chemicals intertwining and reacting, ghosts trapped in the home movie archive, non-human sounds and bodily digressions – ephemerality as told through the body’s appearance and disappearance.
Film archivist Guy Edmonds expounds his impossibly cross-genre home movie séance complete with invited local medium. Tai Shani’s personal pulp theatre show presents things unseen and unheard from the supernatural, and Jonathan Kemp attempts the recursive microwaving of sound. The ever prolific yet inherently underground Ryan Jordan (noise=noise) sets the scene for Possession Trance as DDD. Finally in an unique appearance Glasgow’s TVO (head honcho of the Broken 20 label), conducts his experiments for a bedtime dance floor.
