Performance: Irene Ros, You, now - Who will drink the tea?
As part of their current exhibition, A Minute Ago, students from the MA Performance Design and Practice course at Central St Martins devise new performances.
Irene Ros, You, now – Who will drink the tea
The invention of the digital camera has changed our understanding of “a moment”, giving us the possibility to create our own narrative. We don’t capture a moment, rather we ‘create’, we ‘stage’, we actually waste lots of moments to immortalise ‘the’ moment. In You, now the artistic product is the audience's involvement, recreating a simple trans-cultural gesture of drinking tea. Throughout the show's run, Ros will invite visitors to create this gesture, which will be documented through the creation of a stop motion animation, on display in the final week of the show.
