Some feeling of living in today
Site-specific performance.
18th August 2012.
A site-specific performance following a pre-planned route through the University of East Anglia, Norwich, England, commissioned for Chapter 1 of Jerusalem.


On the outdoor stage just outside the Music Department ...

... a series of texts on cards drawn from a discussion on an on-line forum. A prospective student poses a question concerning the aesthetics of the UEA campus.

Along a trajectory connecting five locations ...

... a procession through the campus. At each of the designated locations, we paused. A question for the campus amplified through a megaphone. A response, also played through the megaphone - a fragment of Stockhausen's Plus-Minus, reflected off the surfaces of the surrounding buildings.

On the grassy area between the Ziggurats and the Broad...

... a batch of concrete mixed using water drawn from the broad. There was enough to fill a small mould, which was broken open in London the following evening, when the concrete had had time to cure.
