We are looking for a sound performer that works with live sound composition using peculiar objects or electroacoustic composer to participate in our 30min project 25’ by 25’ that will be presented at the Welcome Collection on the 10th of May 2019 as an event parallel to their current exhibition Smoke and Mirrors: The psychology of Magic.

25’ by 25’ is a spoken word and dance live performance exploring the mediumship of Margery Crandon – developing aspects of her numerous roles: as a woman, medium, mother, wife and psychic channel for her deceased brother Walter. Using transcripts from Margery’s séances alongside other archival, photographic, sonic, interview and performative material, the performance exorcises the details and ambiguities of Margery’s mediumship. It will provide an opportunity to listen to and share her various extraordinary claims, materialisations and channel for the voice of Walter - with performed dance, sound and readings developed from key documents and testimony.

There will be approximately 6 developing meetings and rehearsals in total within April and beginning of May.

The piece is part of Myrto Farmakis (director) wider research in film, sound and performance work interrogating the notion of hauntology, where screen, voice and movement study the notion of another within, and ideas on cinema and psychoanalysis in combination as the ‘science of ghosts’.

Casting dates: 14, 16 and 18 of April
