CHANGE TO PROGRAMME:
Due to an injury to one of the performers, we are sorry to announce
that there will be a change to the programmed performance of
Indifference at Camden People's Theatre this weekend. In its place, Bill Aitchison will perform 24/7/52, a multi-tasking performance with ten tape recorders.
So, take advantage of the unexpected chance to see this adventurous
and critically acclaimed performance. Indifference will be restaged in
the new year, dates to follow.
24/7/52 is a performance about time: how we experience it and how we tell it. A kaleidoscope of a show that walks a fine line between
minimalism and vaudeville, 24/7/52 is a game that plunges headfirst
into certain failure, producing meticulously structured chaos that
calls upon multi-tasking ad absurdum to create the relentlessness that
"Aitchison informed us that the piece would be participatory in a very
unintimidating way. Indeed it was. Props were shoved at us throughout the hour-long work, which used the tape-recorded sound as a construct to prompt the performer to make an increasingly wild and comedicseries of repetitive actions that contrasted the story of Noah with a spoof weather forecast of the recent gales while he attempted to make a salad and wash his hair. Nonsense? All sense? Who cares! ... it was an hour of great fun and a fine demonstration of the inventiveness and courage of the solo performer."

24/7/52 was developed at BAC London and is co-produced by Plateaux Festival/ Künstlerhaus Mousonturm Frankfurt. 24/7/52 is a
