MC LIVE ISSUE 2 @ ENCLAVE - Saturday 22nd June, 2013
MC Live came to Enclave in Deptford for a two day event. On Friday the 2nd Issue of Misery Connoisseur Magazine was launched and on Saturday we hosted a day of new performances from artists inside Issue 2.
Dave Charlesworth, Erica Scourti accomplished Ashtanga Yoga practitioner instructor Tom Norrington-Davies.
Using material from The Yorkshire Film Archive the starting point for Dave Charlesworth’s performative video installation was a series of visions from the tip of a vast maypole. Through the use of archive material and fragmented narrative, the suggestion was that of a broken folk record that operated at the boundary between authority and the authentic.
Erica Scourti brought a touch of chill-out to MC Live with Mental Movies: a four-hour playing of pre-recorded mental movies, based on guided visualisation scripts designed to help participant relax, clear mind space and dump unhelpful thoughts.
For over three hours Yogi Tom Norrington-Davies became a living sculpture, his body undulating in rhythmic breaths, against the backdrop of Dave and Erica’s performances.
