Re-so[u]rceries and Re-sonations at Treignac Projet

Re-so[u]rceries and Re-sonations at Treignac Projet

Wednesday 13 August – Friday 15 August 2019

[the gathering…the chewing] is a live event-space created by UK-based artist-improvisors Gillian Whiteley and Geoff Bright that works with two intermingled hemispheres: Re-so[u]rceries and Re-sonations.

Re-so[u]rceries sets up a productive collision between sorcery and source materials brought together in a durational site-based practice. Re-sonations is primarily a sonic performance that chews up concepts, words, imagery, texts and clashing idioms from militant free jazz, through incantatory folk to misophonic repetition.

From Wednesday 13 to Friday 15 August, [the gathering…the chewing] will be immersed in the multiple materialities, sonic possibilities and organic environment of the Treignac Projet, creating a site-specific response of live micro-performances during Friday 15 August 2019.

Three live improvised micro-performances Friday 15 August 2019

An installation and a series of live improvised performances produced solely from materials and text found within the Treignac Projet site which was a hospice and chapel in the 16thcentury,  a textile mill from the early 20thcentury and, finally, before closure in the 1990s, a knitting-machine assembly factory.
