With Edward Colless, Sally Golding and Mark Pilkington
Saturday 31 May, 4pm to 5pm
Where: Anatomy Theatre and Museum, Kings College,
Strand Campus, London, WC2R 2LS
Australian visual artist Sally Golding and writer Edward Colless (Australian Arts Writer London Residency, Australia Council for the Arts) stage a collaborative exploration of the culture of the ‘afterlife’ in some of its manifestations: as ghosting, as the undead, as doppelgänger and as spectral horror. The event will be moderated by Mark Pilkington.
Golding presents live mixes of cinema combined with live performance in a twenty minute work involving audience interaction and two-way mirrors.
Colless presents a theoretical fiction as a dramatic monologue, as if delivered from the afterlife. The two works will be followed by a dialogue about the collaboration.
Pilkington runs Strange Attractor Press and is the author of two books, Mirage Men and Far Out: 101 Strange Tales from Science's Outer Edge. He has written for numerous anthologies, magazines and web sites, from The Guardian to Fortean Times.
