Short Circuit – On Performance
What limits us? What challenges us?
ON PERFORMANCE is a screening of unconventional short documentaries that consider the appeal and the preparations for performative acts. This screening explores themes raised by Fabrica’s autumn exhibition, At Home in the Water by artist Vanessa Daws which has been inspired by local pioneer swimmer, Mercedes Glietze. On Performance showcases diverse ideas around bravery and endurance, with a series of short films that draw attention to the trials, triumphs and rhythms of ‘the performance’.
On Performance brings together a vibrant and eclectic programme of films that draw on the exhibition themes including short experimental films from:
Kalli Anderson (Can)
Celine Berger (Ger)
Clare Charnley & Patricia D Gomez (Bra)
Lynn Dennison (UK)
Todd Fraser (Can)
Shon Kim (USA)
Josh Weissbach (USA)
Maximilien Van Aertryck (Swe)
The programme will last approximately 80 mins in total and includes a short interval for drinks and discussion.
Short Circuit is a non-profit, volunteer-run community event and is part of the BFI Audience Network and FilmHub SE. Launched in November 2015, themed screenings invite, emerging, established and award winning filmmakers to share alternative approaches to documentary storytelling.
Doors & bar will open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
