Harry Wilson // Kairos
“The photographer has found the right moment, the kairos of desire” Roland Barthes, Camera Lucida.
Kairos is an Ancient Greek word for non-linear time. It refers to a moment that is filled with significance, in which everything happens. The term is used by Roland Barthes to describe a temporal crisis in his encounter with photographs.
Kairos is a durational performance installation made in response to Barthes’s 1980 book Camera Lucida. It is based around a series of fragmentary performance ‘moments’ derived from the book which, in alphabetical order, are:
absence; air; desire; ecstasy; fragment; grain; haiku; intractable; kairos; mother; pose; unspeakable.
These 12 fragments will be performed 4 times to reflect the 48 sections of Barthes’s book. Each of these times the fragments will be performed in a new random sequence.
You are welcome to enter at any time and leave at any time.

Aby Watson // This is not a Euphemism
This is not a euphemism is a work-in-progress solo performance that explores female sexual experience in a patriarchal culture. With original choreography, film and audience participation, this new performance leads us stumbling back through the clumsy sexual histories of our youth. By stripping back surface layers of ‘getting it on’, this bold new work merges the intimate physical practices of life with the exposing physical practice of choreographic performance. This is direct and bold. This is not a euphemism.
Aby Watson is a Glasgow based performance maker, facilitator and researcher. Her autobiographical and choreographic performances seek to discuss certain microcosms of human experience, with an execution thatwithdraws from notions of virtuosity and grandeur in dance performance. Aby is fiercely dyslexic and dyspraxic which fuels her research passion in the field of SpLds and creative practice.

Mamoru Iriguchi // 4D Cinema
Sporting a screen and a projector around his face, Mamoru Iriguchi turns himself into a mobile cinema and explores what is live and what is pre-recorded and fixed eternally on film. The piece asks what liveness means in this day and age when technology constantly blurs the boundary between actual and virtual realities.
“A great show, full of wit and subtle metaphor… Its liveness contains its death” (The Stage)
Originally trained as a zoologist, Mamoru is a performance maker and theatre designer. Rooted in his experience in set, costume and projection design, Mamoru’s performance works explore 2D and 3D, liveness and pre-recorded-ness, gender and sexuality, fairytales and evolution theories.
