Animalia Interreruptous was an intervention...
a performance or rather a ‘making intervention’ that replaced the format of a traditional presentation. It was proposed for the 2018 Theatre and Performance Research Association (TaPRA) Postgraduate Symposium titled ‘Materials and Materiality: How do they matter?’ held at Central Bankside, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama on Friday, 9 February 2018. The symposium sought to investigate the roles and significance of the various materials that are around us and that make up or are negotiated in theatre and performance practice and research.
The artwork addresses materiality in relation to presentation as a representation of artwork; it is both experiential and material. It delivers the artwork to be experienced in the context of the symposium under the topic of ‘How material matters? Resisting materials’.
