Oct 29th – Nov 21st 2015 SANCTUM, Temple Church, Bristol
I did five solo performances; four reading Place Waste Dissent from cover to cover and the fifth, a red-eye 2 hour marathon, reading from Claremont Road, Contumacy, Place Waste Dissent and Servant Drone. Autumn 2015, a remarkable structure rose up from within the bombed out remains of Temple Church in Bristol. For 24 days, this 14th century site was transformed into an intimate gathering place in which to hear the city like never before.
Chicago-based artist Theaster Gates was invited by Bristol arts producer, Situations, to create his first public project in the UK as part of Bristol 2015 European Green Capital. The artist sought out discarded and dormant materials from former places of labour and religious devotion across Bristol to build an intimate and distinctive temporary structure at Temple Church. From 6pm on Thursday 29th October, Sanctum hosted a continuous programme of sound over 552 hours until Saturday 21st November, sustained by performers, musicians and bands, spoken word artists and the visiting casts of theatre productions in Bristol.
