Tim Etchells: An End is Not The Start of Something
(Reading & Speaking)

Friday 2nd March 6.30pm
Performance Research Space, Jubilee Building, Department of Drama, Theatre & Performance, University of Roehampton.
Open to all, no charge, drinks provided.

For 2010-12, Tim has been visiting professor at Roehampton and will be working with students on the MA/MRes in Performance & Creative Research in early March.

As part of his visit, Tim will be making an informal presentation for the events programme of Roehampton's Centre for Performance and Creative Exchange.  For this presentation, he'll be reading from a selection of his recent performance texts, art projects, fiction and other material. Interspersed between the readings Tim will be respond live to an unseen series of topics or questions previously suggested by the public.

You are invited to suggest a topic or question for Tim to respond to. We will print up the suggestions on a set of cards and divide the pack into two, on a somewhat arbitrary division between topics that could be considered to be related to performance, theatre or art in general and topics not obviously related to those things. Drawing alternately between each pack, Tim will respond to the topics, interleaving these playful or at least impromptu answers with readings from his own writing.

To suggest a topic, simply complete this anonymous survey http://kwiksurveys.com?s=LJDOOH_bb4db4a3
