A short performance that pays homage to the square. This performance, Better Future, Quad-Shaped has been taken from their latest film (recently shot in Cornwall) and is a square dance routine based on a Samuel Beckett's television plays Quad I and II, Bruce Nauman's Dance or Exercise on the Perimeter of a Square (Square Dance) and industrial German band Die Tödliche Doris' Tanz im Quadrat.
Following the Kollectiv's performance will be a programme of films by Die Tödliche Doris, whose contribution to the 1980s Berlin punk scene and beyond has spanned many forms from music, film and performance. Programme selected by the band's founder Wolfgang Müller.
Presented as part of Media Art Bath's THE SENSIBLE STAGE alongside Melanie Gilligan - A Miner's Object and Lucienne Cole - Hi Fidelity Hi, both Sunday 4 November.
THE SENSIBLE STAGE is a programme of three performance works that use various methodologies of communication and engagement (or disengagement) ranging from storytelling to modernist theatre to participatory performance. THE SENSIBLE STAGE addresses questions of experience and perception, participation and spectatorship in relation to performance.
