collaboration:failure

1 hour performance
materials: metal chop sticks, rubber lines, chain balls, velcro

performed: November 8th, 2014, Edwardian Cloakroom, Tempting Failure Festival, Bristol UK

collaboration:failure was a week long series of (3) site-relative performances and (2) installations. Each performance addresses the physical relationship between two artists, as well as their relationship to a space.

Using unstable materials, the performers focus on simultaneous, repetitive actions, that phase, oscillate, conjoin, and gradually alter a space. Abstract and without narrative, they leave the audience time to assess, interpret, and propose her/his own meaning, content and thoughts.

The remnants of these performances are intentional, and remain as installations throughout the following day, allowing the unique possibility to experience what remains of a performance.

concept, performance, light: William “Bilwa” Costa, Jasmin Schaitl
