Leah Capaldi and Jack Tan present the role of the Screen/Object and question the tension a live Body/Subject can introduce. Using the iconic landscape of the Wild West alongside pre-recorded video, live Skype link ups from Singapore and film commentary Leah and Jack question performance as a problemizer, a space of negotiation between states.
ARE WE BODY? OR ARE WE LANDSCAPE? is a live performance following on from Leah Capaldi’s research last year in the USA into the connections between sculpture and performance. It is part of Pushing Boundaries 2, Brighton University’s Annual Research Festival, 13 – 16 July 2015.
