Smith/Stewart

Smith/Stewart set up allegorical situations over which they often have little to no control, but which instigate explorations of dependence and trust, the body, sex and death.

Proposal: A simple request for a simple truth. It will involve all of us, but to say exactly how would be to spoil things… Smith/Stewart’s terse, neat proposals, always tested via performance, lead to provocative outcomes, and unpredictable ones at that; an exponential function of the situation they instigate and the people involved. In addition to and overlapping their performance, Smith/Stewart will be screening their film Ahead in Cinema 2 on a loop. Ahead is one of our all-time favourite artists films; a simple road-movie like no other.
