RETURNING TO JAMAIS VU
Live Performance Installation & Presentation
By Elaine O’Sullivan
Granary Theatre, March 3rd 8pm
Free Event Pre-Booking Advisable
‘Returning to Jamais Vu’ gathers traces of a past event to compile a score to generate new actions and ideas. The event to which we return is Jamais Vu a performance/installation by the artist Anne Seagrave, which was premiered in the Granary in January 2005. Seven years on, audience memories of Jamais Vu are re-activated in the theatre through sound, movement and text.
The live performance installation will be followed by a presentation on my research into sensations of memory and strategies of re-enactment in contemporary art.
