The Centre for Possible Studies

Implicated Theatre @ Serpentine Galleries, Jun 24

24 June 2016

Implicated Theatre present a participatory evening of theatrical interventions at London’s Serpentine Galleries on June 24.

The event titled ‘Towards a Radio Ballad: Songs of the Journey’ is a part of Serpentine’s Park Nights programme, following on from recent evenings featuring presentations by Camille Henrot, and Fred Moten, Eileen Myles and Sondra Perry.

The group who are based at London’s Centre for Possible Studies take their name from their investigation which they carry out most often through experimental workshops that explore the relationships between political speech and action, the self and the collective, the audience and the actor, the voice and silence.

Particularly focussing their work on migrant’s rights groups and unions, the upcoming evening will present spectators with a type of participation that, according to the group’s manifesto, finds its path in the personal, alongside sound compositions developed from a year-long collaboration with migrant hotel workers from Unite’s Hotel Workers Branch.

See the Serpentine website for more details.**

You might wonder why a commercial contemporary art gallery that specializes in avant-garde, highly marketable artists the likes of Martin Creed and Louise Bourgeois would want to suddenly organise dance salsa classes for seniors. Well, I would reply that they are merely catching up with the zeitgeist. Continue reading In the Know
