The Foundling: DRUNK AND DISORDERLY
The final part in a quartet of performances. The last chapter of the Foundling project Drunk and Disorderly will be workshopped as part of an open rehearsal and performed at the ICA. This forms the last of four distinct parts, which includes Lost and Found (performed at the Tete a Tete Opera festival in London 2008), Hide and Seek, (performed at the The Foundling Museum 2009) and Sticks and Stones (performed at St George’s Church in Venice 2009). The video works include texts by the writer Mel Gooding spoken by the actor Julian Bird. This performance includes Linda Hirst, Miguel Tantos, Oliver Coates and Danny Standing.
TURNTABLE TABLEAU, a film performance
Aura Satz performs a talking book ventriloquist act, followed by a live soundtrack to her film on gramophone grooves. The hypnotic footage of spinning sound patterns is accompanied by a spiralling multivocal counterpart, a cornocupia of voices recounting a tale of mourning and technology, a forensic love-story of sorts in which the voices overlap, echo and pre-empt each other. The cinematic stage is animated by a voice-over carousel, a spinning tableau vivant, a canon of voices amplified by horns set on a rotating stage.
She has performed, exhibited and screened her work nationally and internationally, including FACT (Liverpool), Site Gallery (Sheffield), Galleria Civica di Arte Contemporanea di Trento (Italy), De La Warr Pavilion (Bexhill-on-Sea), the Zentrum Paul Klee (Switzerland), Whitechapel Gallery and the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), the AV festival (Newcastle) and the IV Bienal of Jafre in Spain. In 2008 she had solo shows at Beaconsfield Gallery and Artprojx Space, and her film ‘Automamusic’ has since been screened by Artprojx at Tate Britain, Site Gallery, LOOP festival Barcelona.
