Existere

About

JocJonJosch present a major new work, Existere, across Testbed 1 and Son Gallery. Working with up to 70 volunteers they will perform a living performance sculpture: a 'shelter' made of naked human bodies. The 'shelter' will be held together in an endured brace, before inevitably coming apart, pausing and reforming. The work represents ideas such as the unknown and intangible fears that exist outside our protective structures. These concerns are of contemporary significance in view of the recent tragedies in Japan and New Zealand. The performances will take place on three separate days in July at Testbed1. Times will be schedules. To book an entry ticket please register online at www.jocjonjosch.com. All entrance tickets are free. Each performance will last between 15 and 20 minutes. An interconnected exhibition of new work will be held at Son Gallery throughout July. The Doodle Bar on wheels will be open in the Testbed1 yard serving drinks and Street Kitchen will be serving their delicious, gourmet 'fast-food' boxes. www.thedoodlebar.com www.streetkitchen.co.uk www.testbed1.com 33 Parkgate Road London SW11 4NP JocJonJosch is the artistic collaboration of Joc Marchington, Jonathan Brantschen and Joschi Herczeg. Existere performances are supported by the Anna Mahler International Association and the Swiss Cultural Fund in Britain.
