durational performance: audiences are invited to stay as long as they like and come and go as they please

Tickets: 75DKK

 

Originally conceived for the eve of the 2015 UK general election, Cock and Bull sees two females convene to perform their own, alternative, party conference. Exploring power, voice, agency and sustainability, they use the most-heard phrases from near- past governmental rhetoric, to dismantle and redress dominant paradigms of authority and Politics.

 

Responding to the meaninglessness and repetition of empty political promises, the privilege of the governmental elite and the deep discontent of an increasingly disproportionate and divided society, this work is part protest, part catharsis, part exorcism. It also becomes in part, a demonstration of togetherness.

 

For Bodies Beyond Borders, Nic Green presents Cock and Bull in its durational version, lasting the length of an average sitting in UK Parliament. Over seven hours and forty one minutes the piece will transform a choreography of words, underpinned with the real-time energy of political dissatisfaction and tory tongue-speak.  

 

Audiences are invited to come and go as they please throughout the performance.

Please note: This performance is in English. Danish translations will be made available at selected events. Please inquire.

ABOUT NIC GREEN

For twelve years, Nic Green has been working across performative disciplines.  The work she creates is varied in style and form, but all the things she makes explore the possibilities of reciprocity, in the contexts of liveness. Nic Green’s work is concerned with finding ways of being together, which work against cultures of individualism and neoliberalism.  Through collaborative methodologies, forms are often ‘found’ through relational practice with people, place and/or material. If she had to identify a sense of ‘practice’, it would be to do with the development and application of ideas and values, rather than the habituation of action.

 

Cock and bull was co-created with Laura Bradshaw and Rosana Cade, long term collaborators and friends. They are all based in Glasgow, Scotland and continue to work together (and with others) on a new work, due for completion in 2019.
