Metalab presents: performer/audience/re-enactment

For the second of two preliminary workshops kicking off Metalab’s 2012 series, Maya Oppenheimer will introduce and facilitate an audience-focused re-enactment of Dan Graham’s performer/audience/mirror at Riverside Studios, the 1979 London performance site. Graham’s performance challenges the accepted boundaries of perception and presence within a performance field. Re-enacting his piece will allow for an active consideration of his construction but also provide the opportunity to explore differences that re-situate the project in today’s mediatised forums of interaction and observation, particularly within social media. The session, in sum, will address the challenges of using re-enactment as a method of critical and artistic inquiry. Participation encouraged (..and expected)!

This session is free, but booking is essential as places are limited.
