Jeremiah Day / Simone Forti
An improvised collaboration between Jeremiah Day and Simone Forti.
Theatre, 7 May 2009, 7pm
This performance was an improvised collaboration between Jeremiah Day and Simone Forti. Day's work spans photography, installation and story-telling, and employs intensive research to establish connections between himself and places of public significance; while Forti is an artist with links to the origins of post-modern dance in New York in the early 1960s, and whose practice has more recently involved poetic writing. Day studied improvisation with Forti in Los Angeles, and in 2007 the two collaborated on an exhibition at Project Arts Centre, Dublin. This performance extends the latter project, and is accompanied by a discussion with Fred Dewey (director of Beyond Baroque Literary Art Center, Los Angeles), and the launch of a publication on the collaboration, produced by Project.
