Daniel Oliver: Weird Seance

Date:Wed 08 Apr
Time:7:30pm
Venue:J2
Price:Pay What You Feel

Join Daniel for a wild and raucous participatory performance in a fake real woods in an ACTUALLY IMAGINED post-apocalyptic future of a participatory performance about YOU AND YOUR REAL FAKE DEATHS that actually happened in THE PAST which is NOW.  

Sometime ago in a performance space just like this one something went really, awfully, violently wrong. It involved Daniel Oliver doing a participatory performance and it involved an axe and it involved you and all the people you were with. We gather here to revisit, remember and reconstruct that event – and, with Daniel’s help, to attempt contact with those we lost.  

This is a performance about getting involved and not getting involved, about pretending but not pretending we’re not pretending, about reaching a Dionysian space of euphoria and transformation through immersion in awkwardness and horror, and about having fun with the idea that you and everyone you love died horribly.

'Beginning as a bumble and closing in a hilarious, warm, merciless satire of the conventions of live art, it blasts any concerns about sentiment or self-congratulation into jagged fragments' 5 Stars
