I’ll Get a Chair!   3 day R&D lab   Brighton   March 2017

Documentation of the R&D performance lab, rooted in unpacking years of awkward moments. Using chairs and light-hearted playful approaches, mixed with sometimes serious conversations about what people want and desire for each other.

Saini Manninen, writer & performance maker wrote an article, Notes from the Studio, which reflects on the questions and ideas that came out of the three days. Those interweaving ideas are around disability/visibility, expertise and the expert, and autobiography in performance. Read the full article
