For one night only, a performance in the form of an exhibition, or vice versa…

And Instead of a text, an extended title:

The Theatrical Technique of Suggesting Action

Temporary Training Centre:

Early learning for objects and materials,

because all we want to do is work.

Object + Time

Learning to be an independent object.

Pretend to be inert, pretend to be alchemic.

Pretend not to have been made but rather to have just appeared.

Wait and watch closely.

It’s a bit like waiting for hours in a small bird-watching hut, and

then seeing a blurred glimpse of something that you can’t really

give a name to.

Whisper one to sixty in your head.

An object counts from 1 – 60 in its head and then slowly breathes

out.

For objects whose only wish is to work.

For subjects whose only wish is for objects to work.

For objects whose only wish is for subjects to work.
