Avoiding The Genius by Jesper List Thomsen is a piece of writing to be read. To be re-embodied. Using language, and a strategy of accumulation, to lift eight sculptures from their original site in the Villa Giulia, Palermo, Sicily; Avoiding The Genius is made up of nice parts that brings a historical analogy to a contemporary body. Aware of the body as a site of both semantic and gestural potential, the reading will channel and elaborate – not interpret what so blatantly calls for interpretation.
c u l8tr elevator by Hanne Lippard is a performance that deals with formality in communication and excessive excuses, deriving from the discussion about women being overly apologetic and discrete, and the make-up of politeness in language.
