The installation will run from 6:30-8pm each night, with two short performances in the alleyway nightly at 7:15 and 7:45pm. West Projections are also running guided walks earlier each evening that will incorporate a performance (these walks require bookings and have a fee).
The installation features video performances by Chun-Liang Liu, Michael McNab & Emma Riches.
Winter Railyard Event – Thursday 28 June 2018 (meet at 7:20pm, at a location to be advised)
Performers: Clinton Green, Radio Cegeste, Michael McNab
Bookings – email@example.com (places are limited, bookings are essential)
Winter Railyard Eventis a site-specific, invite-only performance with limited audience numbers. It follows on from the sound and projection performance I gave at Quiet Noise VII in March. This performance will take place in restricted areas without permission. Audience members will meet at a location near Tottenham station (details given closer to the event) before moving through various performance locations.
The event will go for approximately 60-70 minutes
We would appreciate a donation for our efforts on the night (recommended: $5-$10).
Plan your site visits – access, equipment, clothing – but be prepared for all plans to go out the window. The nature of site-specificity demands improvisation in all facets
Be determined. Cannot access a site? Try another way in. Warning signs saying no entry? Well, if you are not bothering anyone, or damaging anything, go for it.
I’m all for public space performance, but not in residential areas. Respect residents (human and animal) who may be bothered by your activities.
If you are going somewhere remote, or potentially dangerous, tell someone where you are going and when you expect to be back, for safety reasons.
In the dark, drive/walk slowly. Take your time. Don’t fall over and hurt yourself. Scout locations thoroughly during daylight hours, look for hazards as well as potential sites of interest.
Think about how you will transport your equipment to the sites you intend to visit. Will a car get in? I’m using a backpack and a small wheelie suitcase, along with several small bags with shoulder straps. An old towel or tarp is invaluable for wet ground and sudden rain.
On site, don’t leave your equipment scattered around. Keep it in the one place. It’s very easy to lose and forget things in the dark.
No matter if you forget/lose/break equipment/recording devices, all that is ultimately required is for you to be present in the site.
