Previously at the ICA - Seasons
9 Feb 2011 – 13 Feb 2011
Visit the ICA and discover a radio sit-com being devised, written and performed on-site for this sixth in our Live Weekends series.
Collaboratively written, improvised and directed, The Last of the Red Wine is the art world’s attempt to represent itself more accurately in mainstream entertainment. Circumventing common misconceptions and clichés, it will instead revel in such realities as the farce of artspeak, the tragicomedy of the auction house and the slapstick of incomprehensible performance.
Daily public workshops and script readings in the gallery will lead to evening performances and live rehearsals in the theatre. An introductory symposium sees an open discussion on the representation of art in the media. The ICA Theatre will host contextual screenings followed by improvised performances fleshing out scenes and dialogue as it develops.
The Last of the Red Wine is free entry to all visitors and commences daily from midday. Advance booking is required for the seminar and closing performance – please call the box office on 020 7930 3647 to book.
Last of the Red Wine is conceived and produced by Sally O’Reilly alongside Chris Head and in collaboration with Doug Fishbone, Cariad Lloyd, Hayley Newman, Kim Noble, Michelle Owoo, Hilary Koob-Sassen, Ian Saville, Caroline Smith, Phil Whelans, Neal White, Bedwyr Williams and others. Produced in association with the Whitechapel Gallery and The Media School, Bournemouth University.
