Thursday 15 July, 19:00-20:30
Reactor and Plastique Fantastique have been talking about producing a performance fiction for some time.
We/they (Reactor/Plastique Fantastique) said that there would be a get-together to discuss this performance friction at some point in the future.
We (Reactor) called them and said now might be the time.
They (Plastique Fantastique) agreed and said: one hot summer long ago – 21 June 1998 – after travelling back to a pleasure park and forecasting what would later be said to have been called forth (our, Reactor's, performance fiction), they (Plastique Fantastique) had created a set of protocols (a recording) for our (Reactor's) performance.
They (Plastique Fantastique) claim an enunciation, or a type of performance diction/dictation was cast, for us (Reactor) to follow – an enunciation derived from tarot reading and looping sessions.
We (Reactor) listened in at the other end of the line, but wouldn’t quite hear correctly, and so the performance prediction didn’t happen (they, Plastique Fantastique, said it did and it was followed by us, Reactor, precisely).
So, we/they (Reactor/Plastique Fantastique) thought best to make that known beforehand. Are you (you) OK with that? You (you) are OK with that, so thanks for your attendance.
Plastique Fantastique, a collaboration between David Burrows, Simon O’Sullivan, Alex Marzeta and Vanessa Page, is a mythopoetic fiction - an investigation of aesthetics, the sacred, popular culture and politics – produced through comics, performances, text, installations and shrines and assemblages.
