INTERRUPTED BLACK OUT: THE CENTRE FOR DYING ON STAGE #1

Dates: 14 Aug - 14 Aug

Show Time: 6.00pm - 8.00pm

Meggy Rustamova

Dive Bar events are always free. Capacity is limited to 50 people, with places given on a first come, first served basis.

On this evening, Meggy Rustamova will host a performative screening event, Interrupted black out, in the space of the exhibition. Through her practice she often establishes a reciprocal relationship with her audience, encouraging them to fill in the gaps in her performance, whether through imagination, physical inclination or an impetus towards facilitation. Her stories are formed in the telling. The virgin cocktail Herky-jerky eclipse will be served at the bar.

This event is running as part of the exhibition The Centre For Dying On Stage #1, curated by Kate Strain. Every Thursday a recurring Dive Bar will transform the gallery into an informal social space for performance, exchange and encounter.
