A short clip of the performance of ‘Noise Bodies’. Based on Schneemann’s instructions, I recorded myself relaying the instructions which played through the PA at OTO.
Myself and the performers wore a head lamp each and created our own wearable objects – a mix of discarded objects and personal items. We ‘played’ the objects through interactions, movement, using cable wire as ‘wands’ as instructed by Carolee.
The plans were inacted; Saturday August 15th at Cafe OTO – an evening dedicated to Grant McPhee’s documentary, Teenage Superstars, conversations with Grant, live performances…it was all happening.
In light of the universe coming to a painful standstill, there will be an online screening and live chat with Grant and musicians such as Duglas T Stewart from BMX Bandits and Eugene Kelly from The Vaselines which I will host via my humble Twitter account: @deesada1 at 6pm GMT on Saturday May 2nd.
A still from Peter Davis’ 1965 insightful documentary, Immigrants. The film is a fascinating examination of post-war migrant communities in Britain. Through a series of interviews with immigrants who had recently moved to the UK, we’re given insights into the role race and immigration played in mid-1960s British society.
