At Metro Arts Robbie will explore five separate performance possibilities that aim to generate moments of genuine encounter, focusing on the possibility of relational performance where meaning resides between audience members rather than being held by the performer. This project is a continuation and diversification of Robbie’s Plays Well With Others research project. In order to capitalise on the growth provoked by his MFA Robbie will explore themes, tangents and hunches born out of that process.
Pay will allow the audience to buy and sell performative acts amongst themselves.
Touch will ask audiences to negotiate and play out scenarios of human contact.
Heal explores the intimate connection created by psychics and mystic healers.
Spin investigates disorientation and vertigo as an essential element of play.
…and What Would We Know? is an attempt to list and categorise the knowledge of the audience.
