Dog Kennel Hill Project, broadcast live from Camden Arts Centre, 7pm GMT
A new performance work to mark the culmination of their project in the Artists? Studio.
Dog Kennel Hill Project are creating a collection of live and screen performance actions dealing with authenticity, fiction, tension and crisis; researching ways that this work can be presented in non- theatre settings, such as a gallery installation that has live elements happening durationally. For their project at Camden Arts Centre they will continue to investigate how these approaches can be used to frame performative actions and images.
The Oral Tradition: Jeremy Evans: The hyperlogical mythology of things tells tales of our ancestors, live from Camden Arts Centre, 11th September 7.00 - 8.00pm BST
Jeremy Evans works in drawing, performance video and text, examining structures of understanding that we use consciously or otherwise to traffic with the world around us. Myth making is one such structure and is read in many ways including as a pre-scientific way of understanding the world, the precursor to or result of ritual, allegory and truth. Radical typology reads myth as a way of taking our structures forward through a process of re-reading, re-writing and recreating. This process allows us the space into which we can project our beliefs and understanding into a narrative format, our stories impacting with our own history. Evans will spend the time at Camden examining how myth exists in the paradoxical space of an open internet where stories are shared by the action of cutting and pasting.
The Oral Tradition is a series of short projects focusing on performed narrative. The spoken word, from mythic folklore to the call centre script, is a strong influence in the work of both Jockum Nordström and Emma Hart and this programme has been developed in response to these evolving traditions. The performances take place over four weeks, drawing on diverse source material including epic poetry, digital history and contemporary social protest.

Ruth Barker The Oral Tradition: A Love Song, For Gilgamesh
Live from Camden Arts Centre Sunday 1 September, 3.00 - 3.30pm BST
A Love Song, For Gilgamesh was originally scripted for the striking location of the empty swimming pool on board the SS Rotterdam - an ex cruise-ship moored in Rotterdam Harbour. For The Oral Tradition, artist Ruth Barker will spend one week re-imagining and developing the work in the Artist's Studio, for a live public performance.
Ruth Barker is a Glasgow-based artist whose performance poetry re-tells ancient myths as resonant, current, events. Re-composing ancient stories through the lens of her own unconscious associations, personal autobiography, and mythological research, Barker's performances are hypnotic, ritualised, events. Her words are recited from memory with a concentrated focus that becomes by turns magical, claustrophobic, and cathartic.
Ruth works with a fashion designer from whom she commissions bespoke garments to be worn during her performances. For A Love Song, For Gilgamesh, Glasgow-based designer Carmel O'Brien has created a striking floor-length piece in rich russet velvet and gold lurex.
