An event by Benjamin A. Owen
Plymouth Arts Centre, 38 Looe Street, Plymouth, PL4 0EB
Free but limited capacity: advance booking recommended
For this event a range performers will gather in clusters across the floor of PAC, producing a sprawling live soundtrack to accompany a film about an ageing jazz musician and a community of W.I. ladies. Rhythmic and angular, this work draws deeply upon Owen’s interest in layman’s relationship to politics, performance and participation. Expanding upon ideas of cinemas, Go/df” explores how narrative is forged through competitions between soundtrack, voice and performativity. Starting at 5pm, musicians will converse, build and resist amongst the bits.
Benjamin A. Owen is currently Community Artist in Residence at Cubitt Gallery, London, and co-curator of alt-culture collective Onomato. Go/df” was originally commissioned by Exeter Phoenix and supported by Plymouth Arts Centre and Trinity Community Arts, Bristol.
