Heckling is an act that has been felt throughout the history of performance. It is rooted within oral traditions and still pertinent in the gibing of politicians and comedians today. It is often a form of embarrassing interruption, failure and inescapable discomfort. However, heckling is also a process of creation: a method of weaving flax together in the textile industries.
HECKLE will explore how performance can carry a similar binal definition, as both a form ...that is liable to fail and break down, as well as one which can gather us together. Exploring what shape, tone and texture heckling takes in performance, the weekend seeks to articulate heckling as a conceptual tool, where the heckle might become a movement, a dynamic, or a way of pushing away from a standardized or accepted methodology or practice.
