Moe Chee 默契 (pronounced ‘Moe-chee’ or ‘Mo-Qi’) is a phrase in Mandarin that has no direct English translation, but can variously be interpreted as ‘silent bonding’, ‘unspoken agreement’, ‘mutual understanding’, ‘tacit’, ‘in sync’. Chun-Liang Liu and Clinton Green are artists working together with dance, music, movement and sound. Their performances, often unofficial and in public spaces, seek engagement and interaction with audiences and passersby. 默契 describes their connection in performance – https://moechee.com
Is There A Hotline? – Avid ‘flow’ practitioners and DIY enthusiasts Jen Tait (Gwenhwyfar Cheerful) and Jennifer Callaway call out to the cosmos using an assemblage of percussive objects and electronica, evoking transportive atmosphere, psychic storms and quiet retreats.
Baby Roy – Michael and George McNab. Sarcy subversive anti-performance duo. Special debut show on this 28th day of September, Name Of George’s 24th Baby Birthday. Boring acapella numbers, pathetic stage tricks, props, costumes… in short, idiocy hitherto unsurpassed… one awkward moment after another, for the sake of brotherly indulgence.
