If it’s not hot
If it does not count a few centuries on its back
Then it is not what you are coming to witness
Join Rawmatterial’s next ludic step into London City for true action in all forms
Marlowe, Keats, Wilde, Baudelaire
French and Greek songs of the early 20th
Rawmatterial’s performers: Maria Gaitanidi & Stéphane Poliakov.
Rawmatterial is an international collective of artists who explore alternative performative approaches, notably the ‘speech as action’ and ‘ludic structure’ as developed by Russian theatre director Anatoli Vassiliev. No matter the text, language, space or mean – an intense, fluid action will rise from the performers, magnetizing audiences/witnesses to an unexpected flow.
This evening’s performance will be followed by an open discussion with the artists.
‘I found it an incredibly compelling performance and was totally engaged. Rather than wondering “why that phrasing” “what’s the hidden meaning of that word” I could experience it on a purely visceral level, which perhaps ties in to the idea of action which was discussed in the debate.’ Audience member, Tauris->< --> City – Crossbred Dialogues, 1 May 2012
