FeltActs and Bosse & Baum are proud to present a weekend of curated performance and film, exploring the historical, social, and cultural definitions of heckling. The programme for the weekend sees an exciting group of artists working in different disciplines, yet all commonly using an expanded definition of performance as an approach or methodology.


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.

Curated by Bryony White, founder of FeltActs.
