Living Things International Arts Festival 2018 presents:
Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster by Nicola Gunn

Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster is a confrontational muse on peace and conflict, moral relativism and the very function of art, inspired by an incident that actually happened. A woman saw a man throwing stones at a sitting duck and she yelled at him. What follows is a dissection of the excruciating realms of human behaviour and a navigation of the moral and ethical complexities of intervention. Littered with anecdotes and digressions, critical and philosophical theory, the text is accompanied by a rhythmic electronic soundscape and a non-stop, athletic choreography that shifts from the unnecessary and incongruous to the comic and strangely affecting. These multiple layers form a work in perpetual motion, “a moral and physical workout, witty, outright funny, deeply intelligent and, as intended, morally perplexing…” RealTime.

Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster slips across tempos, ideas and performance modes – from theatre to dance to performance art and back.
