by Cally Spooner (UK)
«Offshore» is an itinerant performance company and pedagogical structure initiated by Cally Spooner to draft new vocabulary and terms of how to organise, work, and perform together. Arriving from literature, theatre, and a messy, unrequited love affair with philosophy, «Offshore» sits somewhere between a philosophy school for embodied knowledge, an engine, an alibi, a backroom, a rehearsal, and some deliberate, unguaranteed, social plumbing.
Previous presentations include: La Fundición, Bilbao (ES); Playground Festival, Leuven (BE); Stanley Picker Gallery, Kingston (UK); NTU Centre for Contemporary Art, Singapore (SG); Centre National de la Danse, Paris (FR).
On the occasion of the presentation at Cabaret Voltaire, OFFSHORE will be led by Cally Spooner, Michelangelo Miccolis plus one guest to be announced.
Entrance fee: CHF 10.- (Cabaret Voltaire Members: free!)
