Abstract or Description:

Performance of play (6th iteration of 10) as part of Avoidance-Avoidance project (2012-2017) at Contemporary Arts Centre Bretigny, Paris, curated by Pierre Bal Blanc.
Avoidance—Avoidance combines a performed play staged amongst exhibited art works. The play has had 10 iterations in 6 countries using 12 actors and has been performed in 5 languages. Each presentation comprises a new edited site-specific script and a new body of accompanying artworks that act as both autonomous artworks and stage devices.
The play centres on two characters based on the film director Mary Ellen Bute and her real-life lover and cinematographer Ted Nemeth. The dialogue is a love story which comments on the methods of concealment that are used both in our personal intimate relationships and more broadly speaking in politics where ‘trust’ and ‘transparency’ are a valuable currency.
This iteration was exhibited alongside Beatrice Gibson's 'Tigers Mind' which was part of a wider project in collaboration with Will Holder, Alex Waterman, John Tilbury and Celine Condorelli
