Tim Etchells: A Broadcast / Looping Pieces

Sunday 16 November

A Broadcast / Looping pieces is an improvised performance based on extracts from the artist’s notebook.


Over many years Tim Etchells has accumulated fragments of text, ideas, overheard conversations and cut-and-paste excerpts from newspapers and web pages in a ‘notebook’ – in fact a single sprawling word document.


In this performance Etchells weaves together passages from his textual scrapbook to create unexpected dialogues, juxtapositions and ambiguous collisions. A Broadcast / Looping Pieces provides a window into Etchells’ creative process and his approach to text, as well as what he terms the ‘transformative power of performance’.
