Thanks For Asking is a performace project by Barry Laing with artists Martin White, Matthew Berka and the First Impressions Youth Theatre. It will be held at the Epping Memorial Hall this Friday and Saturday. The event presents a hybrid of live video and theatrical performance as part of the City of Whittlesea‘s youth theatre company. White remarks that “It‘s an extraordinary work that arose from us asking the group to identify things they’ve never been asked, but would like to be. The answers (sometimes true, sometimes false, sometimes both) give an amazing insight into the participant‘s lives, thoughts and experiences. The responses have also formed the basis for abstracted physical choreographies“. As these forays delve into defining the identity of self, using various physical and technical methods, the night promises to be quite an extraordinary event. Thanks For Asking will meld content and form between pre–shot interview, stage play, dance and video mash–ups. Definitely worth the trip up to Epping.
