Zonal Interspersions Next Steps 1995

08 May 1995 : The Performance Space, 199 Cleveland Street, Redfern, Sydney, Australia

A series of solo performance vignettes interspersed site-specifically around the venue and in-between the other presentations in the program. Part of this work was repeated for 20th Anniversary of Performance Space, and occasion when my performance caused a police visit. (See Zonal Interspersions 2004). For NEXT STEPS Alan Schacher has devised a series of interventions to exist between the familiar zones and territories identifying the fabric and architecture of The Performance Space. Images will be interspersed through the space and between the acts which comprise the evening’s programme. The intention is to refer historically to other work Schacher has made for the same building over the last three years, notably for Eventspace(s) and for Open Season, both laudable innovations on The Performance Space’s programme. The notion of History, as used by Schacher, applies also to a history of occupation of the building, particularly by other Performances, which have tended to accept the challenge to continually reinvent the space. Echoes, or memories, of those works are spliced with the mesh of fictional narratives which underwrite the history and embodiment of each Performance Act he presents.
