SATURDAY 3rd OCTOBER

CATALYST ARTS GALLERY : 3pm – 4.30pm

Roundtable : Audience participation: democracy or autocracy?

In the context of an international performance festival, Fix09 explores the relational aspect of public interventions: participation. Fix09 is hosting a public discussion, trying to get beyond the broad definitions towards a better understanding to the relationship aspect of participation, the role of the artist, the role of the active audience, the role of the art piece, process and outcome, the mutual benefit (or damage) that can happen, the limits of a participatorial relationship.
As FIX is taking place in Belfast, it also includes the exploration the special circumstances of participatorial relationships in a society that is dealing with a latened, sectarian conflict.

Four speakers will each give a 5 minute response to their position to participatorial relationships in the artistic, performative contexts, followed by questions and contributions from the wider audience.

Chaired by Susanne Bosch, artist and Course Director for the MA Art in Public at University of Ulster.

Speakers are: Alastair Maclennan, installation artist and performer; Dan Jewesbury, artist and writer; Sinead O’Donnell, performer; Sarah Tuck, Executive Director of CREATE, the national development agency for collaborative arts; Josh Ippel and Charlie Rodderick, Hideous Beast.

THE MENAGERIE, Ormeau Rd, From 8pm

ACTION HERO : A Western


We want to make a Western. We have a cowboy hat and some ketchup. Everyone will have a moustache. All the bad guys laugh. Dust blows across a deserted street.

Music.

Together with our audience we reclaim this chaotic half-arsed Western as our own and celebrate the failure of generic heroes, cheap whores and the all American idol.

Action Hero are Bristol-based artists making live art and performance.
