THE BOOK OF BLOOD

The BOOK of BLOOD: Performance Laboratory LEIBNIZ strongly encourage local ‘ownership’ of each Book of Blood event in order to maximise its dual function as a platform for the airing and sharing of individual and collective concerns about human rights issues and for the celebration of local artistic achievement, aspiration and endeavour.

To this end, each Book of Blood event is preceded by workshops facilitated by Fischer and Spackman that aim to gather and/or generate multi-disciplinary artistic activities that offer a uniquely local and site- responsive contextualization of the central action of the blood donation.
In accordance with ]performance s p a c e [ and LEIBNIZ’s mutual concern with nurturing emerging artists, we propose a 6-day performance laboratory (Sunday 23rd – Friday 28th July
), the specific aim of which will be to generate performance material for inclusion in the culminating presentation of THEBOOKOFBLOOD:Human(w)Riteson Saturday 29 July 2017 (provisionally scheduled for 6-9pm) as part of ]performance s p a c e [’s WAKE programme.
The performance laboratory will explore a range of body-based and site-responsive methodologies developed through previous LEIBNIZ projects. In accordance with the collaborative, eco-humanitarian and trans-disciplinary ethos of The Book of Blood, the laboratory will be
guided by three overarching objectives:
1. the dissemination of multidisciplinary and collaborative modes of performance-making that nurture the development of emergent/early career and ‘outsider’ artists;
2. the creation of rituals and/or performative documents that are sensitive and responsive to the site(s) in which they take place, invite participation and remain open to interpretation;
3. the deployment of performance as a potential site for the manifestation of ‘new’ bodily imaginings and politicized inter-corporealities.
