Unstable, fragile but daring together

Instead of the one-way monologue of normal performance, what would be the result of an actual collective dialogue? Where would it go?

Four respected, challenging, fresh artists and writers; all interested in doing things collectively and in seeing art as an opportunity for radical, politicised action.


Proposal: Often framed in terms of a dialogue (But even so only very specific dialogues, between an artist and: a space, their materials, their ability to create a mimetic realism that authentically bears witness to their intention and refined senses, a yet-to-exist ideal audience etc. and so on… rarely a two-way dialogue between artist and audience.) art more often resembles a monologue (We witness a self, thinking to itself, alone and aloud about itself, bearing witness to the intimacy of its’ own thoughtful confession or process of production.  How dull…): What would an actual dialogue involve, what subjects can noise and improvisation comment on, what is a productive and provocative, unstable and fragile space in which we can dare to do things we wouldn’t do otherwise? How We have no idea, it is totally open: this ‘performance’ will deliberately be created out of what happens (with you) during Mattin, Emma, Anthony and Howard’s investigations earlier in the week. Why Instead of the one-way monologue of normal performance, what would be the result an actual collective dialogue?  If that dialogue happened in Dundee, where would it go?
