Take One / Take Two / Take Three
Performance as Publishing
3/4 March, 31 March/1 April, 5/6 May 2016

Take One / Take Two / Take Three is a broadcast project by Performance as Publishing hosted at Eastside Projects and broadcast by This is Tomorrow. Over three events, nine new artists’ performances will be staged to camera for broadcast in the presence of a live audience. The series plays with the transposition of ‘liveness’ and the event in a digital context through framing and editing with works that put forward different takes on repetition, transformation and accumulation.

This programme is a continuation of Performance as Publishing’s ongoing investigation into text, writing and language in contemporary art, specifically in performance. Between the live performances, a specially selected set of artist films will be screened, chosen during Performance as Publishing’s residency at LUX Artists’ Moving Image.

Participating artists are Eddie Peake, Marie Toseland, Phil Coy, Nicole Bachmann and Ruth Beale. The first broadcast on Friday the 4th March at 7pm will feature performances by Eddie Peake, Phil Coy and Ruth Beale. Doors open at 6.30 and will close at 7pm.

Please be aware that the event will be broadcast live on the internet by This is Tomorrow.

Please note this event contains full frontal nudity, and is not suitable for anyone aged 16 and under.

The rehearsals are open to the public during normal gallery hours (12–5pm) on Thursday and Friday. The events will be free but space is limited so advance booking is strongly recommended.
